Research Bulletin (Iowa Agriculture and Home Economics Experiment Station)


This bulletin reports the results of a study designed to measure the variations in cropping and livestock systems within the type·of-farming areas of Iowa.

The differences between farming systems within regions have received only limited recognition. Some of the shortcomings of the current agricultural programs have been attributed to their failure to make adequate allowance for individual farm variations.
