Using Vendor and Trade Credit for Farm Purchases

Purdue University agricultural economist Brady Brewer is joined by Purdue Agricultural Economics graduate student Chad Fiechter and Kansas State agricultural economist Jennifer Ifft to discuss issues surrounding vendor and trade credit in the agricultural finance sector. There has been a lot of growth in farmer use of vendor and trade credit as terms and conditions for this credit can sometimes be cheaper for farmers. This episode focuses on what this credit means for farmers and what pitfalls there may be for a producer that is thinking about using this type of financing for the purchase of equipment or inputs.
