This report documents the findings of the 1990 Women In Agriculture survey and personal interviews that were conducted during the summer of 1990. The overall goal of the research project was to collect primary data on women living on farms and ranches in South Dakota. The specific objectives of the project were to determine if there was a variation in participation based on the size of the operation, age of the woman or stage in the lifecycle, geographical location, types of production enterprises and off-farm employment status of the women. The final section of this report makes recommendations for future study and summarizes the perceived needs of farm and ranch women.
