Termination of Oral Agricultural Leases in South Dakota

Under South Dakota law, when a farm tenant occupies and cultivates agricultural land of forty acres or more, under an oral lease, the tenancy continues for the following crop year upon the same terms and conditions as the original lease unless written notice for termination is given by either party to the other by September first, whereupon the tenancy shall terminate March first following.

Under this law, the term "agricultural land" includes grassland, either native or tame.
