When the lessor or his assigns gets the actual possession of the crop or any part
thereof otherwise than by the mode prescribed in G.S. 42-15, and refuses or neglects, upon a notice, written or oral, of five days, given by
the lessee or cropper or the assigns of either, to make a fair division of said crop,
or to pay over to such lessee or cropper or the assigns of either, such part thereof
as he may be entitled to under the lease or agreement, then and in that case the lessee
or cropper or the assigns of either is entitled to the remedies against the lessor
or his assigns given in an action upon a claim for the delivery of personal property
to recover such part of the crop as he, in law and according to the lease or agreement,
may be entitled to. The amount or quantity of such crop claimed by said lessee or cropper or the assigns
of either, together with a statement of the grounds upon which it is claimed, shall
be fully set forth in an affidavit at the beginning of the action.
