B6 - THE JOURNAL, Thursday, December 14, 2017 By Payne County Extension Educators Nathan Anderson, Agriculture Educator Dea Rash, FCS Educator Keith Reed, Horticulture Educator Summer Leister, 4-H Educator Su=ette liana, Rural Development http://oces.okstate.edu/payne AG NEWS Leasing Arrangements Considerations As the new year approaches many producers are starting to renew or gain new lease arrangements with land owners and other producers. When entering into a leasing agreement it is important that both the landowner and tenant care- fully consider what each one is expecting from the lease. There are five basic questions that both the landowner and tenant need to answer before any agree- ment can be completed. What portion of the income am I entitled to receive? This question is needed to determine the type of lease agreement. Will it simply be a lump sum payment to the land- owner based on the number of acres available or will the payment be based on the performance of animals or crops raised on this prop- erty? One example of a performance based lease agreement is a pasture lease where the payment is based on the weight gain of the calves during the lease period. What portion of the costs do I contribute? This question determines who is responsible for expenses incurred during the lease. Such costs could include fertilizer, pesticides, fence and building repairs and machinery costs. What portion of the risk do I bear? This question is similar to question one, if a landowner receives a lump sum payment at the begin- ning of the lease period then that landowner has no risk involved in the production of that property. But if the payment amount is directly related to the production value of the crop or animal enterprise, then the land- owner shares some of the risk with the tenant. What crop and man- agement practices will be followed? This question determines just when, how, and what will be done tion of the land at the end of lease? This question addresses the expectations of the landowner at the end of lease. Answering these five questions will help both the landowner and tenant deter- mine the value of the lease of the property, number of effective on the species you to the lower 12 to 15 inches acres, reservation rights of are trying to kill, mix 25 % of the trunk or stem oftlie the landowner, length of of the herbicide with 75% plant you are ti'ying to Ell. the lease, renewal options, diesel (1 quart of chemical It is important to treat the and sub-lease rights.
