Excerpt from the report Introduction: In recent years potato growers have been faced with a serious problem of adjustment. Improved technology as applied to production of potatoes has increased yields per acre more than for most crops. At the same time, per capita consumption of potatoes has steadily declined. A smaller acreage of this crop is needed and alternative crops must be found to make up a well-balanced farming system. Desirable farming alternatives depend on the special circumstances of different areas. The purpose of this study Is to analyze the alternatives available in an area in which a marked shift in acreage has already taken place and in which further changes may be necessary. In this report the situation relating to small and medium-sized farms is emphasized. These farms constitute the large majority in the area and ordinarily they have the most acute problems of adjustment in maintaining or Improving farm incomes.
