Project Overview

We built upon the lease modernization activities and
materials created in the AgLease101 grant (RME-MDJ0316). We (1)update the regional machinery and building/facility leasing publications and lease forms (2)create sample flexible cash leasing examples (3)developed materials to help landowners evaluate prospective farm operators, and (4)develop materials to help farm renters communicate effectively with new landowners.

We surveyed several hundred farm property managers and farm owners to obtain current building and facility rental rates in the Midwest.   This information was published as a NCFMEC fact sheet.

 Printed copies of 4 new regional publications were mailed to each of the state committee members for distribution within their states.

Number of Participants: 1300
