Share crop vs cash rent

Was wondering if anybody does any share cropping instead of cash rent. If so are you doing 50/50, 75/25, or 33/66. Long and the short of it is got a neighbor farmer that only wants to tend cash crop (tobacco and sweet potatoes) and wants me to tend his grain for rotation. He is going to continue to rent land, fertilizer, lime, and he has buns and a dryer. Any insight what would be fair.
