Cotton crop share lease details


Hello. New member wanting to inquire about a cotton crop share deal that I’m new to. The tenant wants me to share in the seed cost what he calls a ‘tech fee’ … it’s my understanding that in the past the landowner does not share in the cost of any seed.

My question in a nut shell is, are landowners sharing seed costs (cotton) with their tenant now? Is this a new standard?



I don’t think so. Normally, you should get 1/3rd of the produce (similar to Paddy).

Others can pitch who have really given lease.


Thanks. Our cotton crop share lease pays the landowner (me) 1/4 of the crop. Grain is 1/3.


How much it comes to you in Rs. Per Acre? by way of selling the cotton?
