Debtor will immediately notify Secured Party of any loss or damage to the Property. Debtor will prepare and keep books, records, and accounts about the Property and Debtors business, to which Debtor will allow Secured Party reasonable access.
Debtor will not sell, offer to sell, license, lease, or otherwise transfer or encumber the Property without Secured Partys prior written consent. Any disposition of the Property will violate Secured Partys rights, unless the Property is inventory sold in the ordinary course of business at fair market value. If the Property includes chattel paper or instruments, either as original collateral or as proceeds of the Property, Debtor will record Secured Partys interest on the face of the chattel paper or instruments. If the Property includes accounts, Debtor will not settle any account for less than the full value, dispose of the accounts by assignment, or make any material change in the terms of any account without Secured Partys prior written consent. Debtor will collect all accounts in the ordinary course of business, unless otherwise required by Secured Party. Debtor will keep the proceeds of the accounts, and any goods returned to Debtor, in trust for Secured Party and will not commingle the proceeds or returned goods with any of Debtors other property. Secured Party has the right to require Debtor to pay Secured Party the full price on any returned items. Secured Party may require account debtors to make payments under the accounts directly to Secured Party. Debtor will deliver the accounts to Secured Party at Secured Partys request. Debtor will give Secured Party all statements, reports, certificates, lists of account debtors (showing names, addresses, and amounts owing), invoices applicable to each account, and any other data pertaining to the accounts as Secured Party requests.
If the Property includes farm products, Debtor will provide Secured Party with a list of the buyers, commission merchants, and selling agents to or through whom Debtor may sell the farm products. Debtor authorizes Secured Parry to notify any additional parties regarding Secured Partys interest in Debtors farm products, unless prohibited by law.

Debtor will be in default if any loan proceeds are used for a purpose that will contribute to excessive erosion of highly erodible land or to the conversion of wetland to produce or to make possible the production of an agricultural commodity, further explained in 7 CFR Part 1940, Subpart G, Exhibit M. If Debtor pledges the Property to Secured Party (delivers the Property into the possession or control of Secured Party or a designated third party), Debtor will, upon receipt, deliver any proceeds and products of the Property to Secured Party. Debtor will provide Secured Party with any notices, documents, financial statements, reports, and other information relating to the Property Debtor receives as the owner of the Property.
PERFECTION OF SECURITY INTEREST. Debtor authorizes Secured Party to file a financing statement covering the Property. Debtor will comply with, facilitate, and otherwise assist Secured Party in connection with obtaining possession or control over the Property for purposes of perfecting Secured Partys interest under the Uniform Commercial Code.
INSURANCE. Debtor agrees to keep the Property insured against the risks reasonably associated with the Property until the Property is released from this Agreement. Debtor will maintain this insurance in the amounts Secured Party requires. Debtor may choose the insurance company, subject to Secured Partys approval, which will not be unreasonably withheld. Debtor will have the insurance provider name Secured Party as loss payee on the insurance policy. Debtor will give Secured Party and the insurance provider immediate notice of any loss. Secured Party may apply the insurance proceeds toward the Secured Debts. Secured Party may require additional security as a condition of permitting any insurance proceeds to be used to repair or replace the Property. If Secured Party acquires the Property in damaged condition, Debtors rights to any insurance policies and proceeds will pass to Secured Party to the extent of the Secured Debts. Debtor will immediately notify Secured Party of the cancellation or termination of insurance. If Debtor fails to keep the Property insured, or fails to provide Secured Party with proof of insurance, Secured Party may obtain insurance to protect Secured Partys interest in the Property. The insurance may include coverages not originally required of Debtor, may be written by a company other than one Debtor would choose, and may be written at a higher rate than Debtor could obtain if Debtor purchased the insurance.
AUTHORITY TO PERFORM. Debtor authorizes Secured Party to do anything Secured Party deems reasonably necessary to protect the Property and Secured Partys interest in the Property. If Debtor fails to perform any of Debtors duties under this Agreement, Secured Party is authorized, without notice to Debtor, to perform the duties or cause them to be performed. These authorizations include, but are not limited to, permission to pay for the repair, maintenance, and preservation of the Property and take any action to realize the value of the Property. Secured Partys authority to perform for Debtor does not create an obligation to perform, and Secured Partys failure to perform will not preclude Secured Party from exercising any other rights under the law or this Agreement.
If Secured Party performs for Debtor, Secured Party will use reasonable care. Reasonable care will not include any steps necessary to preserve rights against prior parties or any duty to take action in connection with the management of the Property.
If Secured Party comes into possession of the Property, Secured Party will preserve and protect the Property to the extent required by law. Secured Partys duty of care with respect to the Property will be satisfied if Secured Party exercises reasonable care in the safekeeping of the Property or in the selection of a third party in possession of the Property.
Secured Party may enforce the obligations of an account debtor or other person obligated on the Property. Secured Party may exercise Debtors rights with respect to the account debtors or other persons obligations to make payment or otherwise render performance to Debtor, and enforce any security interest that secures such obligations.
PURCHASE MONEY SECURITY INTEREST. If the Property includes items purchased with the Secured Debts, the Property purchased with the Secured Debts will remain subject to Secured Partys security interest until the Secured Debts are paid in full. Payments on any non-purchase money loan also secured by this Agreement will not be applied to the purchase money loan. Payments on the purchase money loan will be applied first to the non-purchase money portion of the loan, if any, and then to the purchase money portion in the order in which the purchase money Property was acquired. If the purchase money Property was acquired at the same time, payments will be applied in the order ..Secured Party selects. No security interest will be terminated by application of this formula.
DEFAULT. Debtor will be in default if any of the following occurs and Debtor fails to cure the same within five (5) days:
(1) Debtor (or Borrower, if not the same) fails to make a payment in full when due;
(2) Debtor fails to perform any condition or keep any covenant on this or any debt or agreement Debtor has with Secured Party;
(3) a default occurs under the terms of any instrument or agreement as evidencing or pertaining to the Secured Debts;
(4) anything else happens that either causes Secured Party to reasonably believe that Secured Party will have difficulty in collecting the Secured Debts or significantly impairs the value of the Property.
REMEDIES. After Debtor defaults, and after Secured Party gives any legally required notice and opportunity to cure the default, Secured Party may at Secured Partys option do any one or more of the following:
(1) make all or any part of the Secured Debts immediately due and accrue interest at the highest post-maturity interest rate;
(2) require Debtor to gather the Property and make it available to Secured Party in a reasonable fashion;
(3) enter upon Debtors premises and take possession of all or any part of Debtors property for purposes of preserving the Property or its value and use and operate Debtors property to protect Secured Partys interest, all without payment or compensation to Debtor;
(4) use any remedy allowed by state or federal law, or provided in any agreement evidencing or pertaining to the Secured Debts.
If Secured Party repossesses the Property or enforces the obligations of an account debtor, Secured Party may keep or dispose of the Property as provided by law. Secured Party will apply the proceeds of any collection or disposition first to Secured Partys expenses of enforcement, which includes reasonable attorneys fees and legal expenses to the extent not prohibited by law, and then to the Secured Debts. Debtor (or Borrower, if not the same) will be liable for the deficiency, if any.
By choosing any one or more of these remedies, Secured Party does not give up the right to use any other remedy. Secured Party does not waive a default by not using a remedy.
WAIVER. Debtor waives all claims for damages caused by Secured Partys acts or omissions where Secured Party acts in good faith.
NOTICE AND ADDITIONAL DOCUMENTS. Where notice is required, Debtor agrees that 10 days prior written notice will be reasonable notice to Debtor under the Uniform Commercial Code. Notice to one party is notice to all parties. Debtor agrees to sign, deliver, and file any additional documents and certifications Secured Party considers necessary to perfect, continue, or preserve Debtors obligations under this Agreement and to confirm Secured Partys lien status on the Property.
