Debt-Asset Ratio

Business / Agriculture / Debt-Asset Ratio: A financial ratio that measures the percentage of a farm operator’s assets that are financed by debt. For example, a ratio of 0.4 means that for every $100 of assets the operator has $40 of debt. The ratio indicates to a lender the degree of security of a loan. Higher values indicate greater risk. Although a safe or acceptable level varies greatly by enterprise, a debt-asset ratio in excess of 0.4 may indicate financial stress. A ratio of 0 means that the operator owes no debt: a ratio greater than 1 means that the borrower’s debts exceed the value of assets, indicating the insolvency of the farm business.
