This report depicts profile of share farming and farm leasing practices in Cairns, Mackay, Bundaberg-Maryborough, and NSW.

With an aging farmer population, high land value and a large amount of small farms, share farming is seen as a solution. This report lists a number of key learnings from the research undertaken:

  • Share farmer/lessee profile
  • How income is split
  • Flexible arrangements for rent
  • Sharing costs
  • Managing a farm for an owner
  • Survey results – Owner/leasor
  • Share farming and leasing arrangements in other crops
  • Benefits to Industry

The upshot is farmers consider share farming and lease arrangements worth it.
