The purpose of this study is to determine labor, power and machinery- rates of performance tor different farming operations in central South Dakota, tor both dryland and irrigated conditions. The operations on which information will be presented will be those that are most typical or this area. These operations will include such field operations av are necessary for producing and harvesting small grain, corn and hay in both dryland and irrigated areas. The individual operations will be dealt with later in the study. Since the coats for these different operations vary from year to year, and vary between farms, dependent on size and organization, they are presented in physical terms rather than in, monetary terms. When presented in this manner, the specific costs for a particular farm can be determined by attaching current prices to the physical quantities.
