Abstract

Tenancy in Iowa has increased steadily during the past 50 years and has, no doubt, been a contributing factor responsible for some of the major misuses of land and some of the impoverishment found in rural community life and institutions.2 Previous studies show that tenants have a higher percentage of their total farm land in crops and more of their crop land in corn and soybeans than do owner operators.3 A lower yield of corn and oats accompanies these crop systems on tenant farms.
