The establishment of Bank Pertanian Malaysia (BPM) in 1969 was in line with the government’s move to carry out irrigation projects to accommodate double cropping for paddy planting in the states of Kedah and Perlis; known as the Muda Agricultural Development Authority (MADA) area.
With the establishment of BPM to provide credit assistance to farmers, two branches were opened; the first in Alor Setar, Kedah in April 1970; and followed by Kota Bharu in Kelantan. By 1980, BPM emerged as the largest credit services provider to the rural agriculture sector.
