Did you know that nearly 50% of all farmland in the United States is owned by individuals who do not farm their own land?  Non-operator farmland owners who lease their land to farmers have a key role to play in resource management.

If you are a farmland owner who does not farm your own land, you can:

  • Learn about resource management issues in your area including water, air and soil quality.
  • Plan and implement improvements on your land.
  • Learn more about the practices used by those farming your land, and discuss options to improve resource management.
  • Help make decisions about your farmland to protect your investment and the environment for the future.

For more information about what landowners can do to reduce nutrient losses and how to have a conversation with their tenant about nutrient management. Check out our Tip Sheet
