Farmland in Maryland may contain a conservation easement over the property.  Conservation easements limit the use of the property forever.  Leasing farmland with a conservation easement on it may create special issues for landowners who have never leased farmland before.  

This episode highlights a recently developed publication by Mayhah Suri and Paul Goeringer discussing leasing farmland with a conservation easement in place.  Mayhah joins Paul to highlight what landowners and tenants should consider when developing a farmland lease on preserved farmland.

If you have questions, contact Mayhah at msuri1@umd.edu or 301-405-9576.  You can contact Paul at lgoering@umd.edu or tweet me at @aglawPaul.  Feel free to send thoughts on other podcasts to me as well.
