Abstract

The distribution of farm income depends greatly upon resources available to individual farm operators and their ability to combine resources profitably. The consistency low cash farm receipts from marketing in Lake County as compared to other counties in economic area 4-B in 1959 and 1960, and the widespread low farm incomes in the distribution of rural family incomes in his county indicate that a great proportion of the farm families in this area have not made appropriate adjustments to changing economic, technological, and production factors. The widespread incidence of low incomes in this area might indicate that low income farm operators are facing complex resources management problems. Therefore, research was conducted to study the personal factors that are associated with problem recognition among farm operators in Lake County, South Dakota, in order to determine the factors that impede their progress. This study has the following objectives: to define problem recognition ability as a quantifiable variable, to find out whether or not problem recognition ability of farm operators in Lake County, South Dakota, is related to their net earnings, to establish implications for policy and extension work.
