Custom Farming Agreements

YIour Farm Business

From Tina LeBrun and Wayne Schoper - South Central College , The Journal

An alternative to leasing farmland is a "Custom Farming Agreement". In a typical Custom Farming Agreement, the custom operator agrees to perform all the machine operations on the owner's land in exchange for a set fee or rate. The landowner pays for all seed, fertilizer, chemicals, crop insurance, and other input costs; receives the all grain produced and all eligible farm program payments on the land; and is responsible to store and market the grain.
