Leasing Agricultural Land
Food & Agriculture Org., 2004 - Business & Economics - 21 pages
FAO's Land Tenure Notes provide information on land tenure in a format that can be used by grassroots organizations that work with small farmers and others in rural communities. Fair and secure leasing arrangements that balance the interests of the tenant and the land owner can lead to improvements in access to land for farming, better agricultural production and improved access to food. This guide is intended primarily to support those who work with small farmers by providing information on "good practices" for leasing land, and advice on how this information could be adapted to fit local conditions.
