The farmers that operate the small, average, and large size farms in Colorado County do not apply the sound basic principles of good farm management nor decision making. These farmers have not arrived at an understanding cooperatively by local people and the county extension staff of their situation, problems, objectives, and recommendations.

The main purposes of this study are to (1) discover and suggest recommended practices for small, average, and large size farms in Colorado County and, (2) propose an agricultural extension program for this area.
