If he was a tenant and there was no agreement at all the he work the land then your spouse is correct. He is not entitled to work he did voluntarily. Had you wanted him or someone else to do this you have hired them, decided on a price etc.

So you are not obligated to pay him anything.

Does that fully answer your question?
