Managing agricultural lending risk and opportunities require practices that have stood the test of time, regardless of the economic cycle. The agricultural industry is now in the fifth year of an economic reset. What are the domestic and global macro-economic factors that will impact the individual credit and overall loan portfolio? International trade, interest rates, and mega trends, such as consumer trends and technology, are variables that can influence the direction of agriculture and ag lending. What are the latest agricultural lending practices in determining sound credits and those that offer opportunity for growth, versus those that are incurring portfolio risk? What are the top credit risks in agricultural lending?

To customize this webinar, registrants may submit up to two questions each concerning agricultural issues. Questions will be addressed during the webinar in the order received, so submit your questions early! Email your questions to Dr. Kohl at by Monday, April 23rd with “Webinar Questions for 04/26/18” as the subject line.
