Norwegian State Agriculture Bank (Norwegian: Statens Landbruksbank) is a defunct Norwegian government bank that lent money to investments within agriculture with mortgage in real estate. It was created on 5 February 1965 as a merger between Norges Hypotekbank, Norges Småbruks- og Bustadsbank and Driftskredittkassen for jorbruket. From 1 January 2000, its responsibilities were transferred to the Norwegian Industrial and Regional Development Fund and the Norwegian Agricultural Authority.
