Land Titles

Many Louisiana farmers are on heirs property. This condition that complicates ownership for too many farmers also adds risk and exposure. Clearing the title to ownership could make the land eligible for federal programs, incentives, and forgiveness in ways that are either currently limited or prohibited.
