Changes Enacted to Farm Leasing Program

  • Photo
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Iowa is giving priority to new farmers leasing public land owned by the state.

The state Department of Natural Resources says available land that's managed by the agency can be viewed online beginning in early November. Farmers will have a month to review the details before the agency begins awarding leases.

A participating farmer must be a permanent Iowa resident, have appropriate skills and have a net worth of less than about $691,000. They must also be certified as a beginning farmer.

The change is part of legislation that passed this past spring.
