Farm leasing management meeting being held

Jul 13, 2017

Iowa State University Extension and Outreach in Washington County is hosting a farmland leasing meeting on Tuesday, Aug. 8, at 6 p.m., at the Washington County Extension Office, located at 2223 250th Street in Washington. The annual meeting is offered to address questions that land owners, tenants or other interested individuals have about leasing farmland.

Topics will include land values and cash rent trends, cost of production, methods for determining a rental rate, legislative updates regarding leases and communicating with tenants or landlords.

The 2 1/2hour workshop is designed to assist landowners, farm tenants and other agribusiness professionals with current issues related to farmland ownership, management and leasing arrangements. Attendees will gain a better understanding of current cash rental rate surveys and factors driving next year’s rents such as market trends and input costs.

Each registrant will receive a 100-page workbook with resources regarding land leasing agreements such as surveys, sample written lease agreements and termination forms, along with many other publications.

There is a registration fee, which includes materials. Preregistration is encouraged as an additional fee will be added if registering less than two calendar days before the meeting date. To register contact the ISU Extension and Outreach Washington County office at 319-653-4811 or drollett@iastate.edu.

The leasing meetings being held across Iowa are facilitated by farm management specialists with ISU Extension and Outreach.
