What is a Barter Agreement?

A barter agreement is a legal contract that outlines the terms of trade between parties. This could be a trade of goods, services, products, or similar. Barter agreements are often used in place of exchanging cash or monetary payments. This agreement may also be called an "exchange of services" agreement.

An example of bartering could be a farmer who produces soybeans may enter into a barter agreement with a farmer who produces fertilizer, both agreeing to exchange amounts of their product with each other for mutual benefit. Barter agreements cannot work with land but exclusively involve exchanges of goods and services between parties.

(A) In the performance of its activities, Cargill is entitled to purchase soybeans from farmers anywhere within Brazilian territory (“Territory”);

 

(B) In the performance of its activities, Mosaic is entitled to sell fertilizers to farmers within the Territory;

 

(C) The Parties may have common customers and in light of this fact they wish to agree that Cargill, upon request by and consent of its customers, may transfer to Mosaic all or part of the prepayment agreed with such farmers for the purchase of their soybeans, in order to pay the debts these farmers may have with Mosaic;

 

The Parties hereby execute this agreement, which will be governed by the following clauses and conditions.

 

1. By these presents and in strict compliance with applicable laws, the Parties agree that if in the performance of their activities they find any common customers, Cargill will transfer to Mosaic, always following request by and consent of such customers, all or part of the amount equivalent to the prepayment Cargill has agreed with such customers for the acquisition of soybeans, in accordance with the amount of such prepayment the customers authorize for transfer to Mosaic.

 

2. Once Cargill pays this amount to Mosaic, as provided in the previous item, Mosaic, if requested by the customer, will provide to the customers the documents certifying that the fertilizers have been duly paid.

 

3. It is hereby agreed that the customer will be solely responsible for delivering the soybeans to Cargill, meaning that in the event the customer defaults on the delivery of the soybeans to Cargill, Mosaic will not be obliged to refund Cargill of any amounts paid under Clause 1 above.

8. This Agreement supersedes and substitutes any other verbal or written agreement between the Parties in regard to the subject matter thereof.
