According to the United States Department of Agriculture, agriculture and agriculture-related industries contribute more than $980 billion to the U.S. gross domestic product. America’s farms alone contribute more than $170 billion of that sum.
Although it is widely known that agriculture is one of the largest contributors to our nation’s economy, what many do not realize is that on average, farmers and ranchers receive only about 16 cents out of every dollar spent on food.
At the same time, agriculture producers must make near-constant investments in equipment, technology, and other resources to maintain their operations. Many are interested in options that enable them to upgrade machinery or take advantage of advances in technology without a large outlay of cash.
