Kansas City Federal Reserve reports:

Lending activity at agricultural banks continued to decline in the first quarter of 2017, according to the Federal Reserve's Agricultural Finance Databook.

As economic conditions in the farm sector have remained weak, borrowers and lenders have sought to make some adjustments in financing agricultural production. Some borrowers have looked to reduce spending on farm inputs in response to persistently low profit margins.

Agricultural lenders have also sought to accommodate farm borrowers by extending loan maturities when possible, despite having increased interest rates slightly to compensate for additional risk.

The Agricultural Finance Databook is a quarterly compilation of national and regional agricultural finance data. Find the complete report here>/a>.
