Most farmers at least in the Midwest farm more land that they rent than land that they own. Share rents were the norm in the past, but cash rents are becoming more common all the time. Gary Schnitkey talks about cash rents in this recent Prairie Farmer article. Concerns that Schnitkey discusses specifially include yield and fertilizer application. We know we have customers who like our annual soil testing program specifically because it keeps their landlords in touch with what is going on with their land.
