(1) If a lessee or licensee has his lease or license canceled or terminated or for any reason is no longer the lessee or licensee, then he shall no longer be entitled to any payments or benefits from any federal farm program. If such a lessee or licensee does receive any such federal payment or benefit in connection with the state lease or license, he shall be liable to the state for any amounts received after he is no longer recognized as the lessee or licensee. The lessee or licensee of any state land shall comply with the provisions of the federal farm program when applicable and shall indemnify the state against any loss occasioned by noncompliance with such provisions. In addition to any rentals provided in the lease or license, the state shall receive the same share as it receives for crops of all payments pursuant to any act or acts of the congress of the United States in connection with state lands under lease or license and the crops thereof. The state shall be entitled to such amounts annually for all leases based upon a crop share, even if the lease states that the rental is based upon a crop share/cash basis, whichever is greater. All such leases shall be considered crop share leases for the purpose of receiving the state's share of the federal farm payments.
