The Contract In Contract Growing

I got an email today from an Extension agent looking for contract tips for contract growers.

When I wrote our Under Contract series on contract growing last year, I was surprised at the informality of the agreements being used. There's a ton of trust between big growers and the operations they contract.

How would you feel about forming a business agreement like this on a handshake? What kinds of agreements are you using? What should be included in a contract/agreement? Would you be willing to share a template?
