What is the Heritage Cooperative Input Financing Program?
The Heritage Cooperative Input Financing Program allows you to finance your fall, spring and summer crop input purchases. You can also finance your agronomy prepay purchases from Heritage Cooperative. Eligible charges are between September 1, 2020 through August 31, 2021.
 
What is the financing rate?
Heritage is proud to offer new rates as low as 0% for 2021 only!

Your financing rate is determined by the percent of your corn and soybean acres that are planted with seed sold by Heritage Cooperative. There are five levels of finance rates with the lowest, Heritage Max at 0% and the highest, Heritage Bronze at 3% over prime.

What product and service prices will be used?
The prepaid or cash price in effect at the time of billing will be used for products, and the regular price will be used for services such as custom application, delivery or equipment rental.
