Enhancing the Relationship Between Farmers & Landowners

January 22, 2021

In the states of Illinois, Indiana and Iowa, many farmers don’t own the land they work, but instead rent from non-farming landowners, or non-operating landowners (NOLs). Strong relationships between NOLs and farmers are vital to achieving wide-scale adoption of soil health and nutrient management practices across U.S. croplands. This project is designed to enhance understanding of those relationships and provide the tools and resources necessary to help both parties collaborate on soil health practices that improve farm businesses.
