About Our Row Crop Loans

The USDA estimates that row crops make up more than 75% of all planted acres of cropland across the US. In addition, these farms are home to food, such as corn and potatoes, and materials, such as cotton, that are essential to American life. At Alabama Farm Credit, we view row crop farms as critical to the local and national economy and want to help farmers maintain healthy and productive row crop farms.


Being an American row crop farmer means a lot of moving parts. Rotating crops, expanding your operation, and leasing land all come with expensive costs. Luckily, we can help with the financial stresses of operating a farm. At Alabama Farm Credit, we understand that row crop farming is all about cash flow and will help businesses grow and operate by providing needed and customized loans. Our experienced professionals will work for you and provide customized financing options to keep your business thriving.
