Non-Operating Landowners and Conservation on Rented Land

This report represents the findings of over 12 months of research on non-operating landowners, or NOLs, and the opportunities and barriers to improve conservation outcomes on rented farmland. It is part of a suite of work to better understand non-operating landowners and the barriers they and their farmers face in aligning management objectives, as well as potential opportunities to improve soil health outcomes on rented farmland. The report includes findings from a series of state-focused workshops with advisors to non-operating landowners, a demographic and motives survey, a conservation messaging and recruitment trial project, tax analysis, and a legal analysis of trust ownership. This report gives an overview of these streams of work, promising opportunities identified, and lessons learned.
