Input Financing Program FAQs

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, 2023 through August 31, 2024. Due date for submitting an application is March 15, 2024.

What is the financing rate?

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 four levels of finance rates with the lowest, Heritage Platinum at 4% under prime and the highest, Heritage Bronze at 3% over prime.

What crop inputs purchased from Heritage Cooperative are eligible?

Inputs for raising corn, soybeans, wheat, forage, seed or specialty crops are all covered. This includes seed, fertilizer, lime, chemicals, power fuel, soil testing, DEF, GPS services, custom application, delivery and equipment rental charges. Non-crop inputs such as feed are not included in this program.

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.

When do finance charges begin?

Finance charges are calculated from the date of the invoice when the product is picked up or the prepaid price is locked in. Finance charges are not compounded.

When is the due date?

The Heritage Platinum and Gold levels are due January 31, 2025. The Silver and Bronze levels are due November 30, 2024.

What happens if I don’t purchase the percentage of seed from Heritage Cooperative I anticipated?

The financing rate will be adjusted to the level that was met and made retroactive to the invoice date.
