Hurlburt, Virgil L. (1964) Use of farm resources as conditioned by tenure arrangements (Research Bulletin: Bulletin of the Agricultural Experiment Station of Nebraska No. 215)
How do tenure arrangements affect organization and use of resources within farm firms? Do lease terms and arrangements affect quantities and kinds of inputs? Does the tenant and the landlord each receive full earnings of the resources he contributes to the farm business? Which of the strictly tenure-oriented characteristics of farms, as contrasted with the general economic problems of all farms, help to explain differences between and within owner-operated, cropshare cash tenant-operated and livestock-share tenant-operated farms? These are the major questions to which answers were sought in the research reported here.
