Farmland Rental Workshop - Mankato

University of Minnesota Extension https://extension.umn.edu Farm land rental rates are the largest input cost the farmer has. Determining a fair farm rent agreement is a challenge in today's economy with current low corn and soybeans prices in 2019. An ideal agreement would satisfy both the land owner and the farmer.

The workshop will provide several ways that landowners and farmers can negotiate a fair rental agreement that benefits both parties. Additional topics to be covered include local historic and projected farmland rental rate trends, current farmland values and sales and handouts that will help determine a fair rental agreement.

This event is free and open to the public.
