Abstract

What are the factors influencing systems of farming?

The problem of this study encompasses several interrelated aspects:

1. To discover, if any, the relationship between family-life and housing facilities and a particular system of farming. 2. To discover, if any, the relationship between farm land and a particular system of farming. 3. To discover, if any, the relationship between crop, livestock and poultry enterprises and a particular system of farming. 4. To discover, if any, the relationship between machinery and a particular system of farming.

Experiences in Caldwell County, Texas indicate that there are farmers who have families, raise crops and foster other enterprises, yet their machinery and systems of faming vary. The apparent variations gave need for information to ascertain its relationship to the family life, farm land and enterprises of the farmers. The writer was desirous of discovering certain aspects because of the close relationship existing between the farmer and his line of work.

This study was limited to fifty Negro farmers in Caldwell County, Texas. Its main concern is with an analysis of the systems of farmings in use, and their relationship with home and family life; farm land, enterprises and machinery used by these fifty farmers.
