Upon expiration of this period, the tenant may choose to extend it for another three years, provided that the tenant is notified by means of a collisioned telegram or notification by means of the peace judge of the tenant ' s home, at least six months in advance of maturity.

In time-limits contracts exceeding five years and less than eight years, the tenant may choose to extend them until the completion of this last period provided that the option is exercised in the manner specified above.

ARTICLE 6 . The tenant shall be entitled to the proportional remission of the leasing price, for total or partial loss of crops, in the percentage and conditions established by the regulation, due to fortuitous case or force majeure that involves uninsurable risks, except if the loss was compensated with that produced from the previous harvests.

If the loss is not compensated, the remission may take place only at the end of the lease, at which time the harvests obtained during the duration of the contract will be computed.

Until the final compensation is observed, the tenant may be temporarily dispensed with the payment of the price in proportion to the loss suffered.
