(a) Except as otherwise provided in this section, a farm equipment manufacturer shall provide a farm equipment dealer at least ninety-days' prior written notice of termination, cancellation or nonrenewal of the dealership agreement. The notice shall state all reasons constituting good cause for termination, cancellation or nonrenewal and shall provide that the dealer has 60 days in which to cure any claimed deficiency. If the deficiency is rectified within 60 days the notice shall be void. The notice and right to cure provisions under this section shall not apply if the reason for termination, cancellation or nonrenewal is for any reason set forth in subsections (a) through (h) of K.S.A. 16-1203, and amendments thereto.

(b) In the event that a farm equipment manufacturer has contractual authority to approve or deny a request by a farm equipment dealer to sell or transfer any portion the dealer's business ownership to another party or to enter into an agreement to operate the dealership with another party, the manufacturer shall approve or deny such a request within 90 days after receiving the request. If the manufacturer has neither approved nor denied the request within 90 days, the request shall be deemed approved. The farm equipment dealer's request shall include the reasonable financial information, personal background, character references and work histories as required by the manufacturer to render such a determination. In the event the manufacturer denies the request, the manufacturer shall provide the farm equipment dealer with a written notice of its determination with the stated reasons for the denial.
