Ohio Treasurer Sprague Announces 2023 Ag-Link Application Period is Open

Ohio Treasurer Robert Sprague is reminding Ohio farmers, agribusinesses, and agricultural cooperatives that the Ag-LINK program is available year-round as they plan for the 2023 growing season. Through Ag-LINK, farmers, agribusinesses, and co-ops can receive an interest rate reduction on new or existing operating loans. The loan cap for 2023 has been set at $500,000; and the minimum loan discount for the year’s first quarter is 2.0%. For more than 30 years, the program has helped Ohio’s agriculture community to finance the upfront costs for feed, seed, fertilizer, fuel, equipment, and other expenses.
