Custom farm / crop share question

Question for any of you who have experience with either custom farming or an 80/20 crop share lease. I've gotten to the point of talking to one of my current tenant (577 acres) about trying an 80/20 lease, where I pay the input costs and the farmer gets 20% of the revenue. Just wondering how to take into account the work that 3rd parties do, like ag coops and such. Seems like more of the work is done this way than way back when I was involved and I'm not sure how to account for it in the grey area where it could be done either by the custom farmer or a local coop. How have others dealt with this? Seems like we need to work out some details where there's incentive for the farmer to do some of the work that might be in question.
