Farm Table says:
Really nice summary document of lease opportunities and considerations. Fixed cash lease, flexible cash lease, crop-share lease, and custom farming contract options are discussed and the advantages and disadvantages of each are explored.
When developing a farm lease, areas that should be carefully considered include:
- sharing of costs
- maintaining fertility
- controlling weeds
- maintenance of buildings
- making and financing improvements
- length of the lease.
Economic factors should also be considered when developing a lease agreement. These centre around long-term profitability, return on investments, productivity of land and scale efficiencies.
