New Agri-Input Finance Scheme for Farmers

A specialist new agri-input finance scheme has been introduced this spring by Agrii in an innovative partnership with one of Europe’s foremost food and farming financial service providers.

The scheme has been designed to help UK producers better manage their all-important business cash flows.  Developed and run with the food and agribusiness unit of Rabobank’s global asset finance arm, De Lage Landen (DLL), it provides Agrii customers with assured, flexible and competitive financing for all their seed, fertiliser and agrochemical inputs.

“We are really excited by this new venture,” said Agrii chief finance officer, Jamie Roberts. “Our research-based agronomic advice and technical solutions are proving more essential than ever to growers in such a challenging crop production year”.

“It’s clear that cash flow management support will be equally important to continued farm business success; especially so at a time of serious production concern and with an acute lack of specialist credit support. This makes our new venture with DLL so valuable.”

Also welcoming the partnership, DLL country sales manager (food and agriculture), Steve Martin said: “We are already responsible for financing large amounts of agricultural machinery in the UK each year through leading manufacturers.  We look forward to giving Agrii customers across the country access to the secure, globally-backed farming finance expertise and commitment for which Rabobank has long been recognised.”

“With the new scheme we are now providing the best possible crop production finance as well as technical support to our growers,” concluded Jamie Roberts.  “This will allow them to make the very most of their business opportunities in the current season and beyond.”
