Improving land you rent

Renting land can be a challenge, especially when rental rates and short-term leases stop you from building soil and productivity. With the upward trend of land rental in Ontario, farmers will need to work with landowners to achieve environmental goals for agriculture. 

Farmers know that soil needs a long-term perspective, but this can conflict with short-term rental contracts. This site offers some resources for you to work with your landowners on these issues, to build trust and show them how your long-term investments in their soil will be a win-win for both parties, and for the environment.

Click and read through the menu on the right to find out how.  Or browse through the Resources above to find a sample long-term lease agreement, a discussion check-list and video case studies. You can also click on underlined terms to jump to the Glossary section.
