Farmland Leasing Meeting

Iowa State University Extension and Outreach of Dallas County is offering its annual Farmland Leasing Meeting on August 4, 2014 from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. in the ADM High School commons. This three-hour workshop will focus on issues related to land values and rental rates,  Iowa’s Water Quality Initiative and the Agricultural Act of 2014.

He will also answer questions land owners, tenants or others attending may have about farmland leasing. Each workshop attendee receives a 100-page booklet of useful materials about farm leasing arrangements.

Other topics will include Iowa Cash Rental Rate Survey and Land Values Survey, comparison of different types of leases, impacts of yields and prices and calculating a fair cash rent.
