This means, even if the farmer has a lien on the crop, and he asks you to split his crop with the landlord, or one of the crop sharing partners, the lien created by the seller (the farmer) will not follow the grain when we take possession of it. Keep in mind this does not mean we’re relieved of our financial responsibility of paying the lienholder if the farmer is the one selling the grain to us for his account and he has a lien on his account. Or, checking to see if the landlord or other crop sharing partners have liens on their account as well. If you do find that the landlord or crop sharing partner do have a liens against the grain you’ll need to follow the same steps listed above in the Cash Rents section for placing the lienholder on the check, assigning bushels, or obtaining a lien
