An agricultural lien is a statutory lien which protects sellers of farm equipment from losing their investment, by being able to place a lien on the crops grown with the equipment. Liens secure the payment of the debt so that both parties’ obligations are met. An agricultural lien does not require the debtor’s consent to be created and can be claimed by sellers of farm equipment, fertilizer or seed suppliers, and veterinarian services. When it comes to agricultural lien perfection and collection in California, it is critical to partner with an agricultural attorney who is knowledgeable in all aspects of agricultural law.
