In farming today, leasing land is a popular and profitable option. But, what is the common ratio of rented versus owned land?

According to a recent Farm Journal Pulse, only 10% of the more than 1,400 respondents own all their land. Slightly more than 40% rent more than 60% of their acreage.

Here are the results:

What percentage of your acres do you rent?

  • 1-20%: 13%
  • 21-40%: 13%
  • 41-60%: 20%
  • 61-80%: 22%
  • 81-99%: 11%
  • 100%: 10%
