sharefarming - Sharecropping, Sharemilking

equipment proportion fixed

A form of tenure in which the landlord provides the land, fixed equipment, and often a proportion of the variable inputs, in exchange for an agreed proportion of the final crop. It has been popular in some continental European countries, such as France, and also in the USA and New Zealand. Agreements tend to vary on what is to be shared and communally invested. Sharefarming may also incorporate sharing of fixed equipment between farms.
