Almost 90,000 of Iowa's 213,000 farms are rented.- On nearly all of these farms the lease contract runs for only one year. On many thousands of these the tenant remains but a single year. On many thousand more, the tenant, tho remaining for more than one year, ha' to renew his lease for each season. All this means that the problem of getting the best type of lease and getting it drawn in the best and most satisfactory terms Is a very large one In the state of Iowa. This circular discusses briefly the more important considerations to be kept in mind in making farm rental contracts and explains the so-called "Iowa leases" which are being circulated by the Iowa Agricultural Extension Service.
