A charge, lien or assignment may be created on farming stocks and additional assets in accordance with section 3. “Farming stock” and “additional asset” is defined in section 2. An agricultural charge may be fixed or floating, or both and may be in form and made upon such conditions as the parties to the charge may agree. A farmer, may, individually or in association, create in favour of any person a charge on any farming stock, additional asset or other agricultural asset security for: (a) inputs or other items required for cultivation; (b) sums advanced or to be advanced to the farmer; or (c) sums paid or to be paid on the farmer's behalf under any guarantee; and such security may also cover interest, commission and charges thereon.
