Water law and oil and gas leases top the list of concerns Texas AgriLife Extension Service economist and agricultural law specialist hears as a result of her Texas Agricultural Law Blog.

 “I continue to field many questions over the phone or at workshops dealing with oil and gas leases, as well as water law across Texas,” says Tiffany Dowell. Timely topics that address issues pertinent to Texas landowners have made the blog popular.

“Questions about pasture and hunting leases are also popular. To keep the latest updated information flowing on these topics, as well as others, the agricultural law blog is a central source of information that serves as a good reference.”

A good lease should spell out limitations

The law blog can be found online at http://agrilife.org/texasaglaw/.  It features a number of different topics, including updates on current ag-related litigation and events, information about basic laws in Texas, and information on specific legal issues such as pipeline easements and leasing.

In January, the blog had more than 2,100 visitors.
