Farm Economics Department
The primary purpose of this study is to set forth some of the more important physical and economic aspects involved in the production and marketing of South Dakota potatoes. Such information is needed concerning our crop and livestock enterprises in order to enable us to plan our agricultural development for the future. The history of agriculture shows that there has been almost a continual shift in the types of agriculture in the various regions and that many important shifts will probably take place in the future. This bulletin is intended to aid those who are interested in guiding the agriculture of South Dakota along most economical lines. This concerns itself with potatoes only, but the plan is to make similar studies of each important crop in order to aid in formulating a more comprehensive policy for the development of agriculture in this state.
