The National Agricultural Law Center offers a wide range of resources, one of which is the Finance and Credit Reading Room available here.
 
Typically, farmers must borrow large amounts of capital to operate and maintain their farming operations.  As a result, federal and state statutes, regulations, case law, and lending institutions are important aspects that affect agricultural production.
 
Some major sources of capital for agricultural producers are commercial banks, the Farm Credit System, the Farm Service Agency, or insurance companies. 
 
The Finance and Credit Reading Room provides information on major statutes, relevant regulations, links to the case law index for Finance and Credit, administrative law decisions, Center research publications, relevant Congressional Research Service reports, and many other resources. 

 

These resources are provided by the National Agricultural Law Center as a free service to the public.
