This section indicates that movable improvements are the property of the lessee. Blomquist v. Board of Educational Lands & Funds, 170 Neb. 741, 104 N.W.2d 264 (1960).

Legislature clearly intended that lessee should be encouraged to improve lands by good husbandry by providing for reimbursement for improvements and reducing land to cultivation. State v. Platte Valley P. P. & I. Dist., 147 Neb. 289, 23 N.W.2d 300 (1946).
