Re: Land renting - New and dont know anything

I would say with anything, understand what you`re investing in.  If it`s a farm know the ins and outs of the drainage, like tile and a ditch to tile into or irrigation if that`s what the farm has or needs.  Know the soil types and productivity the "crop suitability rating".   But I would say attend a farm auction just to observe, what is the auctioneer bragging about and what is he soft peddling about a farm. Talk to the attendees, ask their opinions on how good the farm is and what they think it will bring.   If they`re one of the bidders, they won`t say much Smiley Happy but others won`t be shy to give their thoughts.
