Agriculture Economics


American agriculture is a giant without equal in any other in all history. Our farmers contributed tremendously to the success of all the allied nations in the las world war. In the ideological struggle of today, the productive genius of our farmers remains one of the free world's greatest assets.

The purpose of this study is twofold: (1) discover and suggest improved practices for small, average and large size farms in the A. V. Lee School District; (2) propose and implicate an agricultural program for the A. V. Lee Area.

A Study of Practices Followed on Small, Average and Large Size Farms in Madison County, Texas embraces 70 farms in the A. V. Lee School Area. These farms include areas ranging in size from four acres in the small-farm group to 400 acres in the large-farm group. In this study the writer undertakes to spotlight poor practices, limited technological improvements, loose management and inferior soils as these relate to farm size.
