Passed Senate amended (11/20/1989)

Amends the Food Security Act of 1985, effective for the 1989 crop year, to consider a cash tenant as a separate "person" from the landlord for purposes of agricultural payment limitations ($50,000 per person) if: (1) the Secretary of Agriculture has made a determination with regard to the tenant's farm operation; and (2) the landlord did not consent to or knowingly participate in the tenant's failure to meet the payment requirements.

States that a tenant who would otherwise be considered the same "person" as the landlord shall be eligible for payments only to the extent that such tenant would be considered the same "person" as the landlord under regulations in place prior to enactment of this Act.

Amends such Act, effective for the 1990 crop, to make a cash tenant who makes a management but not labor contribution to the farming operation ineligible for agricultural program benefits unless such tenant also makes an equipment contribution.
