Farmland Leasing Meetings
In partnership with county staff and private partners, 89 meetings will be held focused on farmland leasing in July and August of 2017. Through these meetings ISU Extension and Outreach specialists have attendance of around 2,000 participants.
The feedback provided in the 2016 follow-up survey is used in determining the focus of the 2017 program. When asked what topics participants would like to have covered in 2017, up-to-date research and outlook, determining fair rates for unique leasing arrangements, and land stewardship were the top three issues requested. A large percentage of respondents attend year-after-year to hear current information from ISU Extension and Outreach.
While not every unique situation can be covered in the 2-3 hour program, online videos, publications, and Decision Tools on the Ag Decision Maker Leasing page, as well as farm management staff are available to help Iowan’s with further questions on farmland leasing.
