Free up your farm capital with Grain for Fert


Once again, we are offering you the opportunity to swap your grain for fertiliser with our Grain for Fert finance product.

Grain for Fert is a brilliant, all around flexible finance option which allows growers to access seasonal working capital at a low cost, by leveraging against your production of the coming season.

Rates are variable and range from 2.95 per cent to 6.20 per cent and are based on a credit assessment of your application.

You can apply either online through LoadNet or by speaking with your CBH Fertiliser Area Manager or your local Business Relationship Manager (BRM).

The team will then manage the administration of the contract, and arrange drawdown and payment of the invoice once you have collected your fertiliser.
