The purpose of this circular is to bring together in more available form some facts and figures regarding the development of the present farm mortgage situation in South Dakota and to point out their relationship to a future land use policy. It is hoped that each topic covered in the discussion will contribute something to a better understanding of farm mortgage credit conditions in the state, More knowledge of the present situation is essential if an intelligent attack is to be made on this important problem. It has not been possible to analyze thoroughly each problem considered. Such conclusions as are offered will therefore have to be considered as more or less tentative. If the discussion that follows will be of assistance in furnishing some background for intelligent action on these timely and most important problems the undertaking will have served its main purpose.
