Farm leasing is the hiring or renting of farm property. It involves two or more parties, on or more of which is the landowner who is called the landlord or lessor, and one more who is called the tenant or lessee. The arrangement by which they agree to jointly contribute resources and to gain returns is called the lease.

Farms are getting larger every year. As a consequence, opportunities to farm as figured by numbers are decreasing. Thus, the landlord and tenant should be prepared to meet these changing conditions. Where leased property is involved, the parties should combine their resources in the most advantageous combination to result in maximum net profit.
