PRIORITIES AMONG CONFLICTING SECURITY INTERESTS IN AND AGRICUL- 9 TURAL LIENS ON SAME COLLATERAL. (a) Except as otherwise provided in this sec- 10 tion, priority among conflicting security interests and agricultural liens in 11 the same collateral is determined according to the following rules: 12 (1) Conflicting perfected security interests and agricultural liens rank 13 according to priority in time of filing or perfection. Priority dates 14 from the earlier of the time a filing covering the collateral is first 15 made or the security interest or agricultural lien is first perfected, if 16 there is no period thereafter when there is neither filing nor perfection. 17 (2) A perfected security interest or agricultural lien has priority over 18 a conflicting unperfected security interest or agricultural lien. 19 (3) The first security interest or agricultural lien to attach or become 20 effective has priority if conflicting security interests and agricultural 21 liens are unperfected. 22 (b) For the purposes of subsection (a)(1) of this section: 23 (1) The time of filing or perfection as to a security interest in collat- 24 eral is also the time of filing or perfection as to a security interest in 25 proceeds; and 26 (2) The time of filing or perfection as to a security interest in collat- 27 eral supported by a supporting obligation is also the time of filing or 28 perfection as to a security interest in the supporting obligation. 29 (c) Except as otherwise provided in subsection (f) of this section, a 30 security interest in collateral which qualifies for priority over a conflict- 31 ing security interest under section 28-9-327, 28-9-328, 28-9-329, 28-9-330 or 32 28-9-331 also has priority over a conflicting security interest in: 33 (1) Any supporting obligation for the collateral; and 34 (2) Proceeds of the collateral if: 35 (A) the security interest in proceeds is perfected; 36 (B) the proceeds are cash proceeds or of the same type as the col- 37 lateral; and 38 (C) in the case of proceeds that are proceeds of proceeds, all 39 intervening proceeds are cash proceeds, proceeds of the same type as 40 the collateral, or an account relating to the collateral. 41 (d) Subject to subsection (e) of this section and except as otherwise 42 provided in subsection (f) of this section, if a security interest in chattel 43 paper, deposit accounts, negotiable documents, instruments, investment prop- 44 erty, or letter of credit rights is perfected by a method other than filing, 45 conflicting perfected security interests in proceeds of the collateral rank 46 according to priority in time of filing. 47 (e) Subsection (d) of this section applies only if the proceeds of the 48 collateral are not cash proceeds, chattel paper, negotiable documents, instru- 49 ments, investment property or letter of credit rights. 50 (f) Subsections (a) through (e) of this section are subject to: 51 (1) Subsection (g) of this section and the other provisions of this part; 52 (2) Section 28-4-210 with respect to a security interest of a collecting 53 bank; 12 1 (3) Section 28-5-120 with respect to a security interest of an issuer or 2 nominated person; and 3 (4) Section 28-9-110 with respect to a security interest arising under 4 chapter 2 or 12. 5 (g) A perfected agricultural lien on collateral has priority over a con- 6 flicting security interest in or agricultural lien on the same collateral if 7 the statute creating the agricultural lien so provides. 8 (h) A perfected security interest in crops for new value given to enable9 the debtor to produce the crops during the production season and given not10 more than three (3) months before the crops become growing crops by planting11 or otherwise takes priority over an earlier perfected security interest to the12 extent that such earlier interest secures obligations due more than six (6)13 months before the crops become growing crops by planting or otherwise, even14 though the person giving new value had knowledge of the earlier security15 interest.16 SECTION 4. That Part, 3, Chapter 9, Title 28, Idaho Code, as added by 17 Senate Bill 1395, as enacted by the Second Regular Session of the Fifty-fifth 18 Idaho Legislature, be, and the same is hereby amended by the addition thereto 19 of a NEW SECTION, to be known and designated as Section 28-9-324A, Idaho Code, 20 and to read as follows: 21 28-9-324A. PRIORITY OF PRODUCTION-MONEY SECURITY INTERESTS AND AGRICUL- 22 TURAL LIENS. (a) Except as otherwise provided in subsections (c), (d) and (e) 23 of this section, if the requirements of subsection (b) of this section are 24 satisfied, a perfected production-money security interest in production-money 25 crops has priority over a conflicting security interest in the same crops and, 26 except as otherwise provided in section 28-9-327, also has priority in their 27 identifiable proceeds. 28 (b) A production-money security interest has priority under subsection 29 (a) of this section if: 30 (1) The production-money security interest is perfected by filing when 31 the production-money secured party first gives new value to enable the 32 debtor to produce the crops; 33 (2) The production-money secured party sends an authenticated notifica- 34 tion to the holder of the conflicting security interest not less than ten 35 (10) or more than thirty (30) days before the production-money secured 36 party first gives new value to enable the debtor to produce the crops if 37 the holder had filed a financing statment covering the crops before the 38 date of the filing made by the production-money secured party; and 39 (3) The notification states that the production-money secured party has 40 or expects to acquire a production-money security interest in the debtor's 41 crops and provides a description of the crops. 42 (c) Except as otherwise provided in subsection (d) or (e) of this sec- 43 tion, if more than one (1) security interest qualifies for priority in the 44 same collateral under subsection (a) of this section, the security interests 45 rank according to priority in time of filing under section 28-9-322(a). 46 (d) To the extent that a person holding a perfected security interest in 47 production-money crops that are the subject of a production-money security 48 interest gives new value to enable the debtor to produce the production-money 49 crops and the value is in fact used for the production of the production-money 50 crops, the security interests rank according to priority in time of filing 51 under section 28-9-322(a). 52 (e) To the extent that a person holds both an agricultural lien and a 53 production-money security interest in the same collateral securing the same 13 1 obligations, the rules of priority applicable to agricultural liens govern 2 priority. 3 SECTION 5. This act shall be in full force and effect on and after July 4 1, 2001.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE RS10036 The purpose of this legislation is to provide the suppliers of agricultural inputs the ability to secure the risk they take when production credit is extended to a grower, either prior to an operating loan being approved or when an operating loan is not adequate to cover production costs. Idaho's trade suppliers are facing more and more exposure each year as demands for input credit increases. All businesses chose to minimize credit risk and these provisions justifiably give the trade supplier, entering into a risky situation, a security lien commensurate with the risk taken. FISCAL NOTE This legislation has no impact to the general fund. CONTACT: Richard Garber Idaho Crop Production Association 888-0988 STATEMENT OF PURPOSE/FISCAL IMPACT S 1469
