Economist sees direct and indirect farmer impacts following rate hike

An ag economist sees direct and indirect consequences to farming operations following the Federal Reserve’s latest interest rate hike.

Chad Hart with Iowa State University Extension says farmers will see upward pressure on operating loans and land mortgages.

“And it’s a sizable bump when you’re looking at another three-quarters of a percent jump, the third one in a row.”

He tells Brownfield higher interest rates will also affect lines of credit from seed companies and input suppliers as overall costs go up.
