Abstract

Data from USDA's Resource Economics Survey challenge the common, but not well-substantiated, view that farmers are less concerned with erosion on land they rent than on land they own. At the national level, farmers' conservation efforts—as reflected in crop rotation, tillage practices, and use of conservation practices—on rented cropland compare favorably with those on owner-operated cropland. Nevertheless, rented land is subject to more erosion because a greater proportion of it is used to produce erosive row crops.
