Agricultural Credit Guarantee Scheme (Acgs)
The Agricultural Credit Guarantee Scheme was established by the Government in 1986, as an insurance cover to assist all dry –land (rain fed) arable farmers, against natural hazards associated with crop farming such as drought, floods and frost. The decision to apply the ACGS on any particular year is made by Government after assessment of the crop production for a particular year. The criteria for disbursing the funds under the Scheme are as follows:
- The farmers should have enrolled for the Scheme for that ploughing season. Qualifying farmers are those who obtained agricultural loans for seasonal inputs (for example Seeds, tractor fuel, fertilizers); and those who obtained loans for farming machinery and implements.
- To enrol in the Scheme, the farmer pays 5% of the annual instalment as premium; the Bank also assists the farmer by paying the other 5% premium. The combined premium (10%) is paid by the Government.
- The farmer only benefits from the crop protection cover when the Government (the President) has declared the ploughing season as a drought year.
- When a drought year is declared, the Government assists all farmers that have enrolled in Scheme and are up-to-date with payment of premiums. The government pays 85% of the instalment due for that year.
