Lease Supplement for Obtaining Conservation Practices and Controlling Soil Loss
The purpose of this lease supplement is to encourage cooperation between tenants and landowners to obtain and maintain needed conservation practices on a rented farm. Rent adjustments should reflect cost and risk incurred by farming practices. Conservation practices and improvements will not be made unless agreed to in advance and the tenant has the necessary machinery and management ability. A tenant is not likely to make an important contribution to soil conservation unless additional costs are shared or the tenant is assured repayment of an unexhausted value in case the lease agreement ends. Soil loss control is beneficial to both the landowner and tenant.
