The effects of management decisions on agricultural bank failures

American journal of agricultural economics 72(4): 901-910
The effects of management decisions on agricultural bank failures
The assertion that local economic conditions have been responsible for the failures of large numbers of agricultural banks is investigated by pairing solvent and failed banks within rural counties and examining whether balance sheet items alone explain differences in the probability of failure for the two groups of banks. Estimation of a probit model indicates that higher ratios of loans to assets and agricultural to total loan were associated with higher probabilities of failure; banks with higher capital ratios an those affiliated with multibank holding companies had lower probabilities of failure.
