Farmland rental program

Throughout the year, many individuals ask what the “going rate” is for farmland rental prices. That is a difficult question to answer. The rate fluctuates and is highly dependent on the individual farm ground being discussed.

To assist individuals in understanding the different aspects of farmland rental, Purdue Extension and the Putnam County Soil & Water Conservation District are hosting a Farmland Rental in Indiana program. The Farmland Rental in Indiana program will cover:

•Farmland Property Taxes in Indiana by Larry DeBoer, Purdue University

•Managing Your Land as a Resource by Kristi Kennedy, USDA NRCS

•Farmland Lease Basics by Jenna Nees, Purdue Extension & Putnam County SWCD

The program will occur at the Putnam County Fairgrounds (191 N U.S. Hwy 231, Greencastle, IN) Nov. 29, 6-8 p.m. The program is free, although we do ask that you register by Nov. 27 to the Purdue Extension Office at 765- 653-8411 or smith535@purdue.edu. If you need a reasonable accommodation to participate in this program, please contact Jenna Nees by Nov. 22. Purdue University and the Putnam County Soil and Water Conservation District are equal access/ equal opportunity institutions.
