5. Share-farmers

    (a) Where crops are grown under a share-farming agreement and are affected by the charge created by this Act, any moneys accruing by reason of the charge shall be divided between the parties to the agreement in proportion to their respective interests thereunder in the crops or the proceeds thereof:

    Provided that, where the agreement provides for the division of the crops or the proceeds thereof between the parties to the agreement on other than a proportionate basis, the moneys accruing by reason of the charge shall be divided between the parties and their respective interests in such moneys, determined in such manner as is prescribed.

    (b) For the purposes of this section crops shall not be deemed to be grown in pursuance of a share-farming agreement, unless two or more persons agree to contribute towards the growing of the crops by the provision of either land, labour, material, or plant, and to divide among them in such shares and proportions as such persons may mutually agree, the proceeds of the crops so grown.
