Title: Farm Leasing in North Dakota
Author: Staroba, Arlyn R.; Johnson, Jerome E.
Description: This article presents information culled from a mail survey of farm renters in six widely separated North Dakota counties. The 1973-74 study response was 704 questionnaires reporting on over 1,300 leasing arrangements. Fifty-seven per cent of the leases were crop-share, 41 per cent cash rent, and 2 per cent involved crop-share-cash arrangements. Renting land is important to many North Dakota farmers to acquire and control needed resource s. About 60 per cent of t he farm operators rent all or part of their land resources, and they operate almost three-fourths of the land in the state. Renting facilitates changes in farm size without purchase of land. Farm leasing provides the flexibility needed to adapt to constantly changing agricultural conditions.
