Max Armstrong reports on the farmland transactions happening in the country and what that might mean to community banks

Max Armstrong shares insight from the Bank Beat newsletter in a story urging community bankers to hedge their exposure to the farmland lending risk. Writers in that newsletter point to rising farmland prices paired with low interest rates and ask how long do the low rates last. And what happens to asset values with interest rates start to climb. The authors point to tools those banks can use to avoid land risks.

Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
