K-State to Host Agriculture Lease Workshops in Seven Locations


MANHATTAN, Kan. – To help ensure that landlords and tenants understand the complexities in agricultural leases, Kansas State University is hosting seven workshops to address the issues.

The day-long workshops are designed to help landlords and tenants understand different rental arrangements, including cash rent, share rent and the recently-popular flex-rent arrangements in which rental rates can “flex” depending on prices, yields or both.

Dates, locations and contact information for each location include:

The program includes several presentations by K-State Research and Extension agricultural economists, Troy Dumler and Mykel Taylor:

  • Introduction to Rental Arrangements;
  • Ethics of Leasing;
  • Using Excel Spreadsheets; and
  • Using KSU-Lease.xls.

Lunch is included in the registration.
