Barry Ward and Peggy Hall, Ohio State University farm management specialists, will present a farmland lease workshop from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday in the conference room at the Hancock County Agricultural Service Center, 7868 Hancock County 140, Findlay.
They will discuss trends in land cost and land rental rates, and farmland leasing options: fixed and flexible cash leases, factors affecting leasing options and rates, evaluating cash rent survey data, legal issues in farmland leasing, analyzing good and bad leasing practices, and developing a written lease for a farm.
The workshop will provide information to assist in land agreement decisions in a changing agricultural market.
