Dryland farming in eastern and south-eastern South Dakota is characterized by diversified crop production. A major reason farmers in this area diversify is for income stability. Diversification evens out the high variability in income associated with specializing in one crop. It is the purpose of this study to investigate the effects of crop diversification upon income level and variability.
