The agriculture sector relies heavily on leases to fulfill different needs. With absentee ownership of farmland growing in the United States, farmers and ranchers lease many of the acres they farm and graze today. Private parties can grant these leases of land, or in some cases state governments or the federal government may grant a "grazing permit" for a rancher to use public lands for grazing. Farmers or ranchers may also lease the equipment needed in their operations. Read the full overview.
