The SWROC will host a What is a Fair Farm Rental Agreement? workshop on November 20th at 9:30 a.m. Landlords, farmers, and agri-business professionals are encouraged to attend one of this free and informative workshop provided by the University of Minnesota Extension. 

Negotiating a fair rental agreement that satisfies the land owner and the farmer is a challenge. David Bau and Nathan Hulinsky, Extension Educators in Ag Business Management, will provide several ways to determine a fair farm land rental rate for both parties. Topics covered at the meetings will include local historic and projected farmland rental rate trends, current farm land values and sales, a worksheet that will help determine a fair rental agreement.
