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.
