CSBS Data Corner: State-Chartered Banks' Share of Agriculture Financing Ticks Upward

By Brennan Zubrick

This edition of the CSBS Data Corner shows the percent of agricultural loans made by state-chartered banks as a percent of all agricultural loans (non-seasonally adjusted) made by banks and how that share has changed over time. State-chartered banks are an important source of agricultural financing to farmers – and have taken on a larger share of total agricultural financing over time. In the most recent quarter (Q4 2018), state-chartered banks provided the third-highest share of agricultural loans in the history of the Call Report data (67.8%). Agricultural loans consist of two data elements from the Call Report data: Real Estate Loans Secured by Farmland and Loans to Finance Agricultural Production and Other Loans to Farmers.
