70 percent of the NRI landowners are struggling to make use of their agricultural land and hence keeping it idle.
For 50 percent of the young entrepreneurial farmers, the high cost of land is seen as a barrier to getting started and create a business track record.
What is the Land4Lease?
Real Milk Land4Lease is a pilot project connecting landowners wanting to better utilize their farmland and those seeking land to start or expand a farm enterprise. The Real Milk FarmAssist Team newest service collects and provides contact information for landowners and prospective farmers so the two parties can enter into creative dialogue to develop productive farming operations
Why is it needed?
For young entrepreneurial farmers like me, the high cost of land is seen as a barrier to getting started. Connecting new farmers with landowners may provide an entry level alternative while providing a way to establish a sustainable track record. For landowners, connecting with land seekers provides them with the opportunity to improve land utilization, increase the value of their farm land and/or provide an income stream.
What activities are covered?
The relationship between land owners and land seekers can span a wide range of opportunities as long as it is agriculture related. It could be as simple as connecting house owners with a tenant or making a portion of underutilised land available to a new farmer that wants to test out his or her agriculture idea. It could also be something more complex, such as the creating profit sharing farm enterprise over an extended period of time.
