Leasing Cropland

What if I have a few acres of cropland? 

If you don’t have the time or desire to grow crops, or don’t want to invest in equipment to plant and harvest crops or forages, an alternative is to rent out your land.


The land will not evolve back to prairie if you ignore it.  Leaving cropland idle will provide the habitat for invasive weeds and irritate your neighbours.


Information for you as a landlord wanting to enter into a rental agreement can be found in  the Alberta Government publication: Leasing Cropland in Alberta
