The period of record high commodity prices combined with historically low interest rates, which fueled record high profits, dramatic increases in both cash rents and farm real estate values and a number of capital purchases appears to be over, at least for the next few years. We are now in the midst of a transition characterized by much lower commodity prices, resulting in lower profits and decreased loan repayment capacity. The over-hanging cloud in this environment is the debt to purchase some of those capital purchases remains and there is a likelihood interest rates could rise. The result has been increasing levels of financial stress for both agricultural borrowers and lenders.
