dc.description.abstract The following study was made to get an insight into the conditions and farm practices of six different types of farming in the United States from the standpoint of farm management. Previous work along this line indicates that an investigation of the farm organization and administration now practiced on the best types of farms in the United States may not only be very interesting and instructive to the individual, but may contribute some knowledge of real and practical value to this branch of Agricultural science. This study was made from the 1910 Census. The object sought in this investigation in farm management is to secure the elementary facts which must be utilized in organizing and conducting the business of the farm in such a way as to give the maximum of products, profits, and enjoyment to the owner and to the farm family; to supply farm products in the best way to all who need them, and gradually to increase the productivity of the soil.
