A farmer that has solid rapport with a well-informed landowner will be better equipped to manage the financial, legal, and human risks associated with leasing arrangements. We provided resources to both landowners and farm operators that helped each to better understand the other´s objectives and understand the risks and rewards of different lease types. Participants attended face to face workshops delivered in several Indiana locations. These workshops were of two types: 1)a workshop in swhich leasing issues were the sole focus of the workshop and 2) workshops that addressed a broader set of topics with leases being one of the topics. Evaluations of the presentations were conducted to determine which items the workshop attendees found more helpful and which items they would use when developing or modifiying a farmland lease.
A website containing educational material about farmland leasing and a spreadsheet for evaluating the return to tennat and landlord was created. From 12/31/2010 to 12/10/2013 this site has had 37,622 visitors.
