Topics for discussion at the leasing workshop include: latest information about land values and cash rental rates for the area and state; lease communication, determining appropriate information sharing for both the tenant and landlord; lease terminations, including terminating handshake or verbal leases; legal issues related to land ownership; business structures/entities and how these legal structures effects legal risk management; and state/federal resources for beginning farmers and ranchers.

This free workshop is sponsored by the North Central Risk Management Education Center, but registration is requested.

            The agricultural land management workshop series has been held extensively across Nebraska for the past several years with over 3,300 attending. The vast majority of both landlords and tenants find the information to be very helpful in improving communications, setting rental terms, and learning about agricultural land. As crop budgets tighten, it is even more important to attend and listen to the latest discussion about leasing issues.
