Flexible Cash Lease Overview

As the use of flexible cash leases grows, Kent Thiesse, vice president, MinnStar Bank, Lake Crystal, Minn., and former Extension educator, offers an overview of flexible leases, pointing out that a true flexible lease rate can go up or down. He encourages farmers to figure out what makes sense for their farm, and to put the plan in writing and have good communication with their landlords.
