K-State to host 2011-2012 lease workshops for ag tenants and landlords

11/14/2011 - 2/7/2012

Past Event:

Kansas State University will host workshops in 10 locations around the state over the next three months to address the intricacies of leasing agricultural land. The workshops are designed to aid both landlords and tenants as they work to arrive at an equitable arrangement for Kansas farmland.

“Price volatility in recent years, particularly in the grain markets, has led to difficulties for landlords and tenants to determine and negotiate appropriate rental arrangements,” said Kevin Dhuyvetter, K-State Research and Extension agricultural economist. “These day-long workshops are offered to help landlords and tenants manage the risk associated with rental agreements.”

Presentations include: Introduction to Rental Arrangements; Ethics of Leasing; Using Excel Spreadsheets; and Using KSU-Lease.xls (spreadsheet tool).  

Workshop dates and Kansas locations are:

•           Nov. 14 – Downs

•           Nov. 30 – Hutchinson

•           Dec. 1 – Canton

•           Dec. 12 – Syracuse

•           Dec. 13 – Garden City
