Remove From Corn Stover According to Iowa law, a campaign tenant has the right to remove stover (stems, leaves, cobs) after harvesting in a field, unless the lease provides for something else. Stover can be used as food or bed linen or sold by the farm. Tenants and landowners may, in a written lease agreement, define another agreement or limit the amount of remote Stover. See PM 3053A, Issues with Stover Removal on Rented Land for more information. The local rental price can be obtained from an agricultural loan agent from your local bank, by agricultural real estate professionals or by professional farm managers.

The basic rent can be based on several things, for example. B rental interest rates in the region, percentage of return on investment, rental price survey data, per cent of gross income and many others. The recommendation is to calculate the estimated rent rate based on three or four of these factors and then decide. There are neighborhoods where the tenant provides the aggregate (engine) for the pump. The rent should reflect this change and be adjusted (less) based on the age of the unit. The tenant`s contribution to the pivot is negotiable between the tenant and the landlord. The five expenses to be considered are property costs, which include depreciation, interest, taxes, insurance and repairs.

Flexible Cash Guarantee A variant of the fixed-rate lease is a flexible lease in which the rent payable depends on the income actually realized and/or the selling prices available during the rental period. This ensures that the rent paid is in line with the profitability of crops grown this year. Sometimes public payments and crop insurance benefits are also included in the calculation of gross revenues. The landowner shares part of the risk of low return or lower prices, but also a share of the additional profits when prices and/or production exceed expectations. Some flexible leases also take harvest costs into account when determining the final rent or bonus. Publication FM 1724 (AgDM C2-21), flexible farm lease agreements has more details. Harvest How are the costs of combining, drying, transporting and storing crops shared as part of a lease? When corn drying facilities are part of the rental facility, the owner often makes the dryer and storage facilities available. If the corn drying facility is portable, it can be jointly owned or any party may own it and charge the other party a specified amount for its use. The costs of drying fuel and energy are generally shared in the same proportion as the harvest. In some cases, the tenant is paid for delivery to an elevator or processor by the owner in the warehouse harvest. Differences in leasing agreements result from differences in land production capacity and improvements, contributions from each party, and personal goals of the tenant and landlord.

Rental conditions must be reviewed regularly to keep them up to date. The lease also protects the legal rights of all parties involved. More than half of Iowa`s arable land is leased to tenants. In parts of central and northern Iowa, half of up to two-thirds of the country is operated by tenants. On the other hand, in southern Iowa, central and southeast, less than half of the country is operated by a tenant. The percentage of gross income is calculated by taking the average yield of the cultivated commodity multiplied by the expected price of that commodity, which corresponds to the gross income per hectare. The lessor would generally receive about 30% of the gross income calculation; However, the number varies depending on the yield and price. This percentage should be an average over five years or more. See AgDM C2-06, Farmland Lease Annual Report Form, an example of information that could be pic
