Abstract

The occurrence of conflicts over harvested grain in crop share leases (and, less frequently livestock share leases) where the landowner is unable to monitor the harvesting process may be inching upward. The conflicts, in some instances, have contributed to shifting to cash rent leases with the tenant entitled to the entire crop. However, for those who prefer the risks of a crop share or livestock share lease for a variety of reasons, if the land owner is unable to maintain surveillance over the harvesting process, additional steps may be necessary if an agreed upon sharing is to be assured as between the land owner and the tenant (or tenants).
