Bills, Nelson; Colyer, Dale; Derr, Donn; Fellows, Irving; Jeffrey, Arthur; Tremblay, Raymond
This report is concerned with the efforts being made in the northeastern United States to preserve agriculture. This region is known more for its cities than for its farms, yet the Agricultural Census of 1974 recorded a farm output here amounting to 7 percent of the total national farm output. About 500,000 people, in farming and related businesses, are employed as a result of agriculture in the region.
