Adjustable -Term Financing Of Farm Loans

Firm-level simulation is used to analyze farm financial performance with adjustable-rate, adjustable-term, and fixed-rate financing. Adjustable-term financing is accomplished by changing the term of the loan, instead of payment size, when interest rates change. Simulation results indicate that the adjustable-term loan is an innovation which reduces the cash flow destabilizing effects of volatile interest rates.
