What is a share-lease?

A share lease (also referred to as crop-share or livestock-share) is an agreement in which the rent is a share of the crop or livestock produced on the leasehold, or more accurately, the value of the production. The landlord does not necessarily receive the actual product. A share lease may split production costs and profits 50/50 (or some other proportion). A share lease reduces risk to the tenant, while the landowner must be willing to take on a share of the expenses, risks and rewards of the operation.
