PREFACE 



Volume V, Part 2, "1960 Survey of Irrigation in Humid Areas" presents the results of 
the special 1960 survey conducted for the fanners in 30 eastern States who reported irriga- 
tion in the 1959 Census of Agriculture. Most of the information was collected by mail 
although a few reports were obtained by telephone and personal enumeration. 

The 1960 Survey of Irrigation was taken in conformity with the Act of Congress of 
August 31, 1954 (amended August 1957), which codified Title 13, United States Code. 

The planning, compilation of statistics, and the preparation of this report were under 
the supervision of liay Hurley, Chief, Agriculture Division, assisted by Henry L. DeGraff, 
Irrigation Economist. The text was written by Warder B. Jenkins, Assistant Chief. Assist- 
ance in the compilation and publication of the statistics was given by Orvin L. Wllhite, 
Assistant Chief; Lois G. Miller; Hennie L. Sharp; and Helen D, Turner. The field followup 
enumeration was conducted under the supervision of Jefferson D. McPike, Chief, Field 
Division. The maps were prepared under the su|>ervision of William T. Fay, Chief, 
Geography Division.

INTRODUCTION 



IRRIGATION IN HUMID AREAS 



Introduction.— Irrigation of agricultural lands is usually asso- 
ciated with a practice widely used in crop production in the 
Western States. In that broad geographic area, more than one- 
half of the farms use water for irrigation and more than one-half 
of the cropland receives some water in excess of natural precip- 
itation. However, in the other States, the precipitation is not 
always dependable either in total amount or in distribution dur- 
ing the growing season. In parts of the Great Plains, crops are 
produced under relatively high-risk weather conditions. Even 
when summer fallow is practiced, yields are often low or there 
may be total failure. In these States, the irrigated area has been 
increasing rapidly during recent years and the supplemental 
water obtainedlargely from underground aquifers or from recently 
built aboveground storage reservoirs. In the States east of the 
Great Plains, irrigation has become a more widely accepted 
practice, particularly in the production of high-income-per-acre 
crops or of other crops where water can be applied at a cost that 
is below expected gains in income. 

Since interest in irrigation statistics is no longer confined to 
developments in western areas, the collection of some informa- 
tion in regard to supplemental water use by farmers on a nation- 
wide basis has been undertaken in connection with the two most 
recent censuses of agriculture. The legislation which provides 
for Census collection of agricultural statistics specifies that a 
census of irrigation shall be taken at 10-year intervals in con- 
junction with the census of agriculture. Some of the data re- 
garding irrigation have been collected for the decennial census 
from irrigation organizations and some from farm operators. Out- 
side of the Western States, irrigation organizations do not have 
an important role in providing water for irrigation purposes and, 
therefore, in other than Western States all of the data regarding 
irrigation must be secured from farm operators. 

Increased and fuller mechanization of agriculture has enabled 
farmers to enlarge their landholdings. Commercial farm produc- 
ers may attain higher total output not only through the use of 
more land but also by adding increments of other inputs. The 
installation of a new fanning practice such as irrigation, or the 
use of more fertilizer, can have the same effect on agricultural 
output of an individual producer as an enlargement in the area 
of the land he operates. 

There are other variables which influence the rate of accept- 
ance and adoption of irrigation. The variability in the rainfall 
pattern within a given area, as between years or even within the 
growing season, may determine the number of farmers irrigating 
in one year as compared with another. Crops such as rice, cran- 
berries, and greenhouse products almost universally require sup- 
plemental supplies of water for their production. The detrimen- 
tal effect of drought periods of uncertain frequency, duration, 
and time of occurrence has caused other crop and livestock 
producers to look upon irrigation as a form of production insur- 
ance even in humid areas. Under farm programs associated with 
acreage reduction, many producers strive for higher yields per 
acre. When acreage is restricted, a likely way a farmer may in- 
crease his return is by increasing yields per acre. Increased 
applications of fertilizer and more dense planting of crops usu- 
ally make irrigation more profitable. Often the quality of a crop 
can be improved by irrigation which, with an increase in yield, 



may provide sufficient additional income to more than match the 
added cost of applying water. Irrigation provides other benefits 
also. Within certain ranges of temperature, spray irrigation can 
be and is used to prevent frost damage. Irrigation water can be 
utilized for fertilizer distribution. The introduction of light- 
weight portable pipe has hastened the adoption of irrigation 
through lowered costs of system installation and of its annual 
maintenance and operation. Sprinkler irrigation has several 
advantages. Land leveling is not necessary. Also, if because 
of crop rotation or other farming practices the crop selected to 
receive an additional supply of water is grown in a different 
field from year to year, the use of movable pipe eliminates the 
need for and the cost of maintenance of supply ditches. 

Farm ponds and larger areas of impoundments, whether con- 
structed by individuals or by joint action of several individuals; 
stream flows; and wells have been increasingly utilized for 
growing truck and vegetable crops and for berry and tree fruit 
production. Pastures, particularly for dairy herds, have received 
applications of supplemental supplies of water. By irrigation, 
pasture-carrying capacity is increased, thereby, through both the 
extension of the grazing period and the production of more forage 
throughout the grazing period. Tobacco, cotton, com, and soy- 
beans are among the important field crops that have been irri- 
gated. 

The use of water for irrigation places agriculture in compe- 
tition with the growing needs of the human population and of 
industry for existing water supplies. Policy decisions in respect 
to the use of water for irrigation and related subjects such as 
water rights, water storage, flood prevention, drainage, recrea- 
tional activities, and water pollution are currently under review 
by States and communities concerned with the supplies of and 
projected needs for water. The recent surveys of irrigation in 
humid areas not only provide information as to new production 
methods in agriculture but meet some of the needs for data as to 
current developments in water use as well as to a limited extent 
in water storage. 

Scope of This Report.— Volume III of the 1959 Census of Agri- 
culture Reports presents statistics regarding the irrigation of 
lands used for agriculture in 18 Western States and Hawaii. This 
part 2, volume V, presents all the data that will be published 
from a special survey conducted in the fall of 1960 covering the 
irrigation of farmlands in the more easterly States of the United 
States. The 30 States in this survey include all States from 
Minnesota southward to the Gulf of Mexico, with the exception 
of Louisiana, and eastward of that tier of States. For thisreport 
this croup of 30 States has been termed the "humid areas." 
Volume in, the complement of this report, presents irrigation 
statistics for Louisiana and for thoseStates which are westward 
of the humid areas, and Hawaii but excluding Alaska, For brev- 
ity, reference is sometimes made herein to the group of 18 West- 
em States as the "Irrigation States." 

A listing of the names of all irrigators of farmlands was ob- 
tained from the agricultural questionnaire filled for all farms in 
the fall of 1959. The survey statistics, while they relate to 
1960, are confined to the lands operated by farm operators re- 



IRRIGATION IN HUMID AREAS 



porting land irrigated in 1959, or their successors. Through the 
inclusion in the 1960 survey of all 1959 farm operators reporting 
irrigation, and only those, a limited amount of data is available 
for the farms with irrigation in 1959 but not in 1960. (Data for 
that group of farms are given in State Table 1.) No effort was 
made to identify, nor to secure information for any farm with irri- 
gated land in 1960 but with no irrigated land reported for the 
1959 Census of Agriculture. Because of the variation in rain- 
fall, it cannot be stated with certainty whether the number of 
farms with irrigated land in 1959, but without irrigated land in 
1960, would equal the number with irrigated land in 1960, but 
not in 1959. Eight maps are presented to show the relationship 
of rainfall in June, July, August, and September for the years 

1959 and 1960 to the average rainfall over a span of years for 
the critical months in crop growth. 

Following the 1954 Census of Agriculture, a similar survey of 
irrigation of farmlands was conducted, at the close of 1955, in 
28 eastern States. For comparative purposes, some of the data 
collected in that survey are presented in this report. 

Totals are presented in this part of volume V for States and 
selected counties. 

Volumes I and II of the 1959 Census of Agriculture Reports 
present for both counties and States additional data on irrigation 
from the general enumeration of all farms. 

Legal Basis for Survey of Irrigation in Humid Areas. — The 

1960 Survey of Irrigation in Humid Areas was authorized by an 
Act of Congress. "Title 13, United States Code— Census," cod- 
ified in August 1954, and amended in August 1957 and September 
i960, is now the legal basis for censuses of agriculture and 
other censuses and surveys conducted by the Bureau of the 
Census. Section 142 paragraph (b), made provision for a census 
of irrigation and paragraph 181 made provision for the survey. 
These sections read in part as follows: 

"142. Agriculture, irrigation, and drainage. 

a. The Secretary shall, beginning in the month of October 
1959, and in the same month of every fi fth year there- 
after, take a census of agriculture, provided that the 
censuses directed to be taken in October 1959 and each 
tenth year thereafter, may, when and where deemed ad- 
visable by the Secretary, be taken instead in conjunc- 
tion with the censuses provided in section 141 of this 
title. 

b. The Secretary shall, in conjunction with the census of 
agriculture directed to be taken in October 1959 and 
each tenth year thereafter, take a census of irrigation 
and drainage. 

181. Surveys. 

The Secretary may make surveys deemed necessary to fur- 
nish annual and other interim current data on the subjects 
covered by the censuses provided for in this title." 

History of Census Enumeration of Irrigation.— One or more in- 
quiries relating to irrigation of faun and ranch lands have been 
included in each successive census of agriculture since 1890, 
with one exception, viz, 1925. These inquiries were directed to 
the farm operator. Data from the inquiries carried in censuses 
of agriculture are shown herein for only the last two censuses. 
A special survey of irrigation in humid-area States was made in 
the year following both the 1954 and 1959 Censuses of Agri- 
culture. 

Beginning in 1910, a special decennial census of irrigation 
has been taken in the States in which irrigation was most ex- 
tensively practiced. The States included in the Irrigation Cen- 
suses in 1910, 1920, and 1930, were the 17 Western States, 
Arkansas, and Louisiana, Florida was included in 1940 and 
1950. The 17 Western States, Louisiana, and Hawaii were in- 
cluded in the 1959 Census of Irrigation. In these decennial cen- 



suses of irrigation, the inquiries were directed to irrigation 
organizations. Some comparative historical statistics are given 
from the irrigation censuses in volume HI of the reports of the 
1959 Census of Agriculture. 

A joint resolution of Congress, approved June 30, 1902, pro- 
vided for the collection of data on irrigation for the crop year 
1902. Questionnaires were mailed to all the irrigators reported 
in the 1900 Census of Agriculture and to the officials of impor- 
tant irrigation canal companies. The data obtained were tabu- 
lated by drainage basins in order, so it was reported, that a 
better knowledge may be had of the extent to which the waters 
in each drainage basin were being used. (See Census Bulletin 
16 "Irrigation in the United States: 1902," published in 1904.) 



ENUMERATION FORMS AND PROCEDURES 

Questionnaires.— The data in respect to irrigation, obtained 
directly from farm operators, have been compiled from the agri- 
culture questionnaires for the censuses of agriculture when all 
farms are visited and from a subsequent special questionnaire 
required for farm operators reporting irrigation in the general 
census of agriculture. Data collected from irrigation organiza- 
tions have been obtained, largely, by special enumerators inde- 
pendently of the general census of agriculture. 

A facsimile of the survey questionnaire, designated "1-20, 
1960 Survey of Irrigation in Humid Areas" appears in the appen- 
dix. Since the 1960 and 1955 surveys were to be conducted by 
mail, the number of questions was necessarily limited to key 
items relating to irrigation in the humid areas. The experience 
and procedures used for the 1955 Survey of Irrigation in Humid 
Areas influenced greatly the preparation of the questionnaire for 
the 1960 Survey. Some items which had been included in the 
1955 Survey were eliminated from the 1960 Survey and other 
items were added. Data on the cost of irrigation systems in- 
cluded in the 1955 Survey, but for which many farm operators 
could not furnish information, were omitted from the 1960 Sur- 
vey. On the other hand, additional information relating to 
sources of water, the area irrigated by each method of water 
application, and the number of acres of and the number of times 
specified crops were irrigated was obtained to provide a basis 
for estimating the quantity of water used for irrigation. 

Two special committees were consulted in the preparation for 
the 1960 Survey of Irrigation in Humid Areas. Both committees 
were given the opportunity to review the general plan as to how 
the survey was to be conducted, and the proposed inquiries. 
One committee, a Special Federal Agency Committee, for the 
1959 Censuses of Irrigation and Drainage, comprised represent- 
atives of the following agencies: Agricultural Conservation 
Program Service, Agricultural Research Service, Rural Electrifi- 
cation Administration, and Soil Conservation Service of the U.S. 
Department of Agriculture; Bureau of Indian Affairs and Bureau 
of Reclamation of the U.S. Department of the Interior; and the 
Bureau of the Census, The second committee, the Special Ad- 
visory Committee for the 1959 Census of Agriculture, reviewed 
the later stages of the planning. This committee consisted of 
one representative from each of the following: Agricultural 
Publishers Association, American Association of Land Grant 
Colleges and State Universities, American Farm Bureau Feder- 
ation, American Farm Economic Association, American Statisti- 
cal Association, Farm Equipment Institute, National Associa- 
tion of Commissioners, Secretaries, and Directors of Agriculture, 
National Council of Farmer Cooperatives, National Farmers' 
Union, National Grange, Rural Sociological Society, and the 
U.S. Department of Agriculture. A representative of the Bureau 
of the Budget was in attendance at meetings of this oommittee. 



INTRODUCTION 



XI 



The 1959 Census of Agri culture questionnaire, from which the 
list of farm operators with land irrigated was obtained for the 
1960 Survey, contained a single inquiry relating to irrigation for 
those States which were included in the 1960 Survey. The 1959 
inquiry was as follows: 



The questionnaire for the 1960 Survey of Irrigation in Humid 
Areas was designed, in part, to obtain data similar to those ob- 
tained in the Irrigation States from farm operators, for the 1959 
Census of Agriculture. The inquiries for the Irrigation States 
were not used in the humid areas partly because the questions

ports comprising volume I of the reports of the 1959 Census of 
Agriculture. 

In all other States in the conterminous United States and in 
Hawaii, the questionnaire for the 1959 Census of Agriculture 
contained several inquiries regarding irrigation, as follows: 



would be applicable to such a small proportion of the farms or 
farm operators. Furthermore, a special survey made, at a later 
time, would permit the obtaining of useful data in respect to the 
year in which irrigation was first practiced, source of irrigation 
water, method of applying water, type of power utilized in the 
application of water, how many times a crop was irrigated, con- 
structed reservoirs, and other purposes served by the use of 
irrigation water. 

The questionnaires used in the 1959 Census of Irrigation (for 
the 19 Irrigation States) covering operations of irrigation organi- 
zations, are reproduced in the appendix of volume m of the re- 
ports for the 1959 Census of Agriculture. The data obtained by 
their use appear in volume HI. 

List of Farmers With Irrigation in 1959.-After the editing of 
the 1959 Census of Agriculture questionnaires had been com- 
pleted, all questionnaires for the 30 States were examined to 
locate reports of farm operators with irrigated acreage in 1959. 
A transcription card (see exhibit 2 in the appendix) was prepared 
with selected data about the operator and the farm, as each 
questionnaire with irrigated land was identified. The number of 
cards and the total of the irrigated acreage were reconciled in

IRRIGATION IN HUMID AREAS 



most States with the number of farms and the irrigated acreage 
tabulated for the 1959 Census of Agriculture. These transcrip- 
tion cards not only provided the names andaddresses of respond- 
ents but also served as a control record for the enumeration for 
the 1960 Survey of Irrigation in Humid Areas. 

The Enumeration.— The survey questionnaires were mailed in 
December 1960 to each farm operator in the 30 Eastern States 
for whom irrigated acreage was reported in the 1959 Census of 
Agriculture. The mailed questionnaires were accompanjed by a 
letter stating the purpose of the survey and asking cooperation 
in filling and returning the questionnaire. 

Three subsequent mailings were made, as necessary, to non- 
respondents, at approximately three-week intervals. Ehumera- 
tors were employed to obtain information from nonrespondents 
either by telephone, or by personal visit, if the operator had a 
relatively large acreage of irrigated land in 1959. The number 
of 1959 irrigated acres which determined whether or not a non- 
respondent farm operator would be contacted, by telephone or in 
person, varied by States, as follows: 

Georgia, North Carolina, and 

South Carolina 20 acres 

All other States 75 acres 

Questionnaires were obtained for farm operators who reported 
96.5 percent of the irrigated acreage for the 1959 Census of Ag- 
riculture. 

To make the 1960 Survey more complete, as well as to in- 
crease the usefulness of the data, estimates were made for the 
remaining nonrespondents after the field followup enumeration 
had been completed. The estimates were made for individual 
farm operators on the basis of the data reported for the 1959 
Census of Agriculture, and also the 1960 reports for the special 
survey for farms in the same county. The proportion of the 1959 
irrigated acreage for which reports were estimated is shown by 
States in State Table 1. 

Editing and Coding of Questionnaires.— The transcription card 
containing an identification number and the name and address of 
the farm operator was used to insure the completion of the enu- 
meration and for reference purposes during the editing process. 
As the questionnaires were received, the corresponding tran- 
scription card was attached to the questionnaire and remained 
there until editing was completed. This procedure eliminated 
the acceptance of duplicate questionnaires and permitted the 
measuring of the completeness of the enumeration at any time. 
Each questionnaire was individually edited and coded before the 
information was transferred to punchcards for tabulation. Each 
questionnaire was examined by clerks, in accordance with 
written instructions, for errors, omissions, and inconsistencies. 
Among the specific items subjected to consistency checks were 
the following: (a) irrigated acreage compared with total acre- 
age in the farm; (b) the reporting of constructed reservoirs when 
the source of water indicated that reservoirs were necessary; 
(c) acres irrigated by method of irrigation, as compared with 
the total acres irrigated; and (d) the acres of crops reported 
irrigated as compared with the total acres irrigated. Obvious 
errors in calculations and misplaced entries were corrected. 
Questionnaires containing major inconsistencies and omissions 
were reviewed by a member of the technical staff and, depending 
on the magnitude of the data involved, the changes were made 
on the basis of information reported for other farms of similar 
type in the area, or on the basis of additional information re- 
ceived in response to letters to the farm operators. 



During the editing, estimates were prepared for each non- 
respondent as follows:

The 4,600 nonrespondents, for whom 1960 estimates were 
made, represented 15.4 percent of the total number of 1960 
farms with irrigation in the Humid Area but the estimate for their 
1960 irrigated acreage represented only 3.4 percent of the total 
irrigated acreage for the same 30-State area. The estimates for 
these farms probably do not have a large margin of error either 
in the number of farms reporting or in the totals for irrigated 
acreage or for other items of information to which the estimates 
are confined. 

All farms were coded by size of farm on the basis of total 
acreage operated and by tenure of operator. Crops irrigated, for 
which there were no specific inquiries on the questionnaire, 
were coded also. 

Tabulation of Data.— After the questionnaires were edited and 
coded, the information was punched on tabulating cards. These 
punched cards were checked mechanically andthose cards which 
still lacked necessary information, or which contained previ- 
ously undetected or unchanged inconsistent or impossible data 
were listed for further checking and review. The listings were 
examined and, as necessary, the cards were corrected. The 
data were tabulated after the cards for a particular State were 
considered satisfactory. All tabulations were examined for 
reasonableness and internal consistency. Corrections on the 
basis of further review and reappraisal of the original reports 
and verification of the editing, coding, and punching, were made 
when necessary. 



PRESENTATION OF STATISTICS 

Organization of Tables.— Data obtained in the 1960 Survey of 
Irrigation in Humid Areas are presented in 12 State tables con- 
taining totals for individual States and for the 30 States as a 
group. These data are complemented with totals for selected 
items, for selected counties, in a county table. Selected coun- 
ties comprise those counties in which 1,000 or more acres of 
irrigated land were reported in the 1959 Census of Agriculture 
or the 1960 Survey. In 6 States, Illinois, Kentucky, New Hamp- 
shire, Rhode Island, Vermont, and West Virginia, there were no 
counties with 1,000 or more acres of irrigated land. However, 
County Table 1 is presented for these 6 States so as to provide 
State data by crop groups corresponding to the data for the other 
24 States. In County Table 1 the totals for the listed counties 
will not equal the total given for the State as figures for the 
group of counties with less than 1,000 acres of irrigated land, 
in both 1959 and 1960, are not shown. When comparative data 
are presented, from the earlier census or survey, totals are also 
given for the 28 States included in both surveys. The table 
titles, as listed in the Table of Contents, are descriptive of the 
tabular material presented in each. 



INTRODUCTION

Comparability of Data.— Since State totals relating to irriga- 
tion of farmlands are presented for a limited number of items for 
two census years (1959 and 1954) and for the two subsequent 
special surveys (1960 and 1955), it is possible to compare cen- 
sus data with census data, survey data with survey data, and 
census data for one year with survey data for the following year. 
State Table 1 provides a comparison of some 1959 Census data 
with 1960 Survey data and State Table 2 provides additional 
comparisons for both periods. 

The figures for irrigation, presented for the 1959 and 1954 
Censuses of Agriculture, were obtained by the same procedures. 
They are comparable with the exception of differences resulting 
from the carrying out of processing instructions in regard to irri- 
gated acreage reported in fractions of less than one acre. In 
1954, a report of a fractional part of an acre, when unaccompa- 
nied with an integral number, was increased to a whole integer 
and the report of irrigation was thus retained. In 1959, farms 
with less than one acre irrigated were omitted from the count of 
farms with irrigation. To a limited extent, the 1959 number of 
farms with irrigation may be understated when compared with the 
number for 1954. However, the difference in processing proce- 
dures had little effect on the comparability of irrigated acreage 
for the two census years. 

The data for the two special surveys are not fully comparable 
because of differences in coverage and procedures used in com- 
piling the data. The coverage of the two special surveys differs 
significantly because the estimates were made for all nonre- 
spondents in 1960 and because cranberry growers were included 
in the I960 but not in the 1955 special survey. The nonrespond- 
ents in 1960 total 4,600 farm operators, with 63,145 acres irri- 
gated as estimated on the basis of figures for the 1959 Census 
of Agriculture for the same farm operators. Estimates were 
prepared for these 4,600 farms for 1960, and these estimates 
comprise a part of the published totals. The farms for which 
estimates were made for I960 represented 15.4 percent of the 
total farms reporting irrigation and the acres irrigated estimated 
for these farms represents 3.4 percent of the total acres irrigated 
in 1960. The nonrespondents for 1955 total 7,762 farm operators 
with 42,307 acres irrigated in 1954. These nonrespondents rep- 
resent 36 percent of all the farm operators in the 28 States with 
irrigation in 1954, and had 7 percent of the acres irrigated in 
1954. There were 1,134 farms reporting 22,598 acres of cran- 
berries harvested in 1954 in the 28 States. These farms and the 
acres irrigated were omitted from the 1955 Special Survey. 
Farms with cranberries represented approximately 5 percent of 
the farms with irrigation in 1954 and the irrigated acreage of 
cranberries represented about 4 percent of the total acreage of 
irrigated land in 1954. 

To provide reasonable comparable data for the 1955 and I960 
surveys for the 28 States included in both surveys it would be 
necessary to increase the number of farms with irrigation for 
1955 by approximately 74 percent and the acres irrigated by 
approximately 10 percent. 

The number of farms with irrigation in the 28 States for the 
two special surveys, 21,700 for 1960 and 11,997 for 1955, are 
not fully comparable. The total acres irrigated for 1955 were 
compiled by adding the acres of the individual crops which were 
irrigated. The irrigated acreages shown, for that survey ( 1955 
in State Tables 2, 3, and 8) are, therefore, overstated to the ex- 
tent that two or more crops were harvested from the same land. 

In the 1955 Survey, some facts, for example, the acreage of the 
individual crops which were irrigated, were obtained for the 1954 
calendar year and for the 1955 calendar year. For other items of 
information, such as the presence of constructed reservoirs, the 
type of power used, etc., reference was not made to 1954 or 



1955. If irrigation water was used in either year, but not in both 
years, the report was included in the published totals. The 
1955 Survey totals for the 28 States include data for 1,667 farms 
with irrigated land in 1954, but no land irrigated in 1955. For 
1960, the tabulations do not include data for farms with land 
irrigated in 1959, but with no land irrigated in 1960. There were 
9,086 farms with land irrigated in 1959 but with no land irrigated 
in 1960 in the 30 States. These 9,086 farms had 218,304 acres 
of irrigated land in 1959. 

The extent of irrigation in a given year is influenced by 
weather conditions, particularly during the growing season. In 
the summer growing months in the Humid Areas rainfall is vari- 
able from year to year and from month to month. Crops and pas- 
tures frequently suffer from lack of rainfall. The maps on preci- 
pitation appearing on pages VHI to XXV provide rough measures 
of the needs for irrigation in 1954, 1955, 1959, and I960. The 
variations in rainfall have a significant effect upon the area 
irrigated for all crops except rice and cranberries in an area and 
a given year. While the acreage irrigated in the Humid Area has 
been increasing in recent years, the acreage irrigated and the 
comparison of the acreage irrigated for one or two years are 
influenced greatly by rainfall during the summer months. 

DEFINITIONS AND EXPLANATIONS 

Irrigation.— In the enumeration for the 1959 Census of Agricul- 
ture, and in the subsequent special 1960 Survey relating to 
irrigation, farm operators were not given a definition of "irriga- 
tion" or of "irrigated land." It is believed that the meaning of 
the irrigation inquiry on the 1959 Census of Agriculture ques- 
tionnaires, viz, "Of the total land in this place (reported in 
question 203), how many acres were irrigated this year?" was 
understandable to most farm operators. However, in a few in- 
stances the farm operator, when canvassed in the 1960 Survey, 
reported that he had not irrigated any land in 1959. Reports of 
this nature were not included in the 1960 tabulations and, if 
received before publication of the final report of the 1959 Cen- 
sus of Agriculture, were removed from the 1959 Census of Agri- 
culture totals for farms reporting and acres of irrigated lands. 

Irrigated land is defined as land watered for agricultural pur- 
poses by artificial means. These means include subirrigation 
as well as systems whereljy water was applied to the ground 
surface, either by gravity flow or by sprinklers. Land flooded 
for rice or cranberry cultivation was considered as irrigated. In 
the 1959 Census, the greenhouse area was not always considered 
as irrigated land. If the greenhouse area was reported as irri- 
gated, the report was accepted provided the area was one acre 
or more. If the greenhouse area was not reported as irrigated or 
if the area was less than one acre, the greenhouse area was not 
considered as irrigated. Land flooded during high-water periods 
was to be included as irrigated only if water was directed to 
agricultural use by dams, canals, or other works. -The definition 
of irrigated land specifically excluded land where the "water 
table," or natural level of underground water, was controlled by 
drainage works with no additional water brought in by canals or 
pipes. 



Census Definition of a Farm.— For the 1959 Census of Agri- 
culture, the definition of a farm was based primarily on a com- 
bination of "acres in the place" and the estimated value of agri- 
cultural products sold. 

The word "place* was defined to include all land on which 
agricultural operations were conducted at any time in 1959 undei 
the control or supervision of one person or partnership. Control 
may have been exercised through ownership or management, or 
through a lease, rental, or cropping arrangement.

IRRIGATION IN HUMID AREAS 



Places of less than 10 acres In 1959 were counted as farms if 
the estimated sales of agricultural products for the year 
amounted to at least $250. Places of 10 or more acres in 1959 
were counted as farms if the estimated sales of agricultural 
products for the year amounted to at least $50. Places having 
less than the $50 or $250 minimum estimated sales in 1959 were 
also counted as farms if they could normally be expected to pro- 
duce agricultural products in sufficient quantity to meet the re- 
quirements of the definition. Ibis additional qualification re- 
resulted in the inclusion as farms of some places engaged in 
farming operations for the first time in 1959 and places affected 
by crop failure or other unusual conditions. 

For the 1954 Census of Agriculture, places of 3 or more acres 
were counted as farms if the annual value of agricultural prod- 
ucts, whether for home use or for sale but exclusive of home- 
garden products, amounted to $150 or more. Places of less than 
3 acres were counted as farms only if the annual sales of agri- 
cultural products amounted to $150 or more. A few places with 
very low agricultural production because of unusual circum- 
stances, such as crop failure, were also counted as farms if they 
normally could have been expected to meet the minimum value 
or sales criteria. 

Farms Reporting and Acres Irrigated.— Figures for farms re- 
porting (or operators reporting) represent the number of farms 
(or operators) for which a specified item was reported. The 
"number of irrigated farms" and the "number of farms reporting 
irrigated land" are equivalent terms. Data for "land in farms 
reporting irrigation* relate to the entire acreage in those farms, 
including land which was not irrigated. Data for "land irrigated 
in farms reporting" relate only to that part of the land in irri- 
gated farms that was watered by artificial means in the speci- 
fied year. The acreage of land irrigated in a particular farm is 
almost always smaller than the total acreage of the farm. The 
following data for the State of New York illustrate the meaning 
of the various terms used above. For example, in 1960, reports 
of irrigation were received for 1,217 farms which had a combined 
total area of 186,735 acres. These farms had 50,541 acres of 
land irrigated in 1960. Only 460 of these irrigated farms re- 
ported Irish potatoes as one or the only crop irrigated. The irri- 
gated area of this crop for the State was 26,593 acres. In the 
tables showing separate data for New York, these totals appear 
under the following heads: 

Farms reporting irrigation number 1,217 

Land in farms reporting irrigation .... acres 186,735 

Land irrigated in farms reporting acres 50,541 

Irish potatoes irrigated farms reporting 460 

acres irrigated 26,593 

In the report on crops irrigated, the acreage of each irrigated 
crop was to be reported even though more than one crop was 
harvested on the same land in I960. Therefore, the total acres 
of crops reported for a State may exceed the total acres of land 
irrigated. 

Space was provided for the reporting on the questionnaire and 
for punching on to tabulating cards, of tenths of acres for all 
crops except field corn, hay, and pasture. County and State 
totals are always shown in whole numbers. An acreage of less 
than one for any particular crop, for a county, was not retained. 
No provision was made for the reporting, or punching, of tenths 
of acres for total acres irrigated. If the number reported for the 
acreage for total land irrigated included a fraction, the fractional 
part was cancelled, the whole number being retained or increased 
by one depending on the value of the fraction. These processing 
procedures sometimes resulted in discrepancies other than those 
due to multiple-cropping, between the total of the acres of indi- 
vidual crops irrigated, including pasture, and the total acres of 
land irrigated. 



Tenure of Farm or Farm Operator.— Questions 4 through 8 of 
the 1960 Survey questionnaire provided the basis for the classi- 
fication by tenure of farm operator for each operation on which 
irrigation was practiced in 1960. The four tenure groups are 
defined as follows: 

a. Full Owners operate only land they own. 

b. Part Owners operate land they own and also land rented 
from others. 

c. Managers operate land for others and are paid a wage or 
salary for their services. Persons acting merely as care- 
takers or hired as laborers are not classified as managers. 
If a farm operator managed land for others and also oper- 
ated land on his own account, the land operated on his 
own account was considered as one farm and the land man- 
aged for others as a second farm. If, however, he managed 
land for two or more employers, all the managed land was 
considered to be one farm. 

d. Tenants rent from others or work on shares for others all 
the land they operate. In a few cases, where a tenant and 
his landlord operated separate farms in 1959, only one 
questionnaire was obtained in 1960 by an enumerator, the 
questionnaire covering both the tenant and landlord's farm- 
ing operations. 

Year in Which Irrigation was Begun.— The inquiry, "In what 
year was irrigation begun on this place? (the land reported in 
question 8)" was intended to ascertain when irrigation was first 
begun on the farm rather than by the operator who was operating 
the farm in 1960. Of course, in many cases, the I960 operator 
must have been the originator of irrigation on his present farm. 
For a given area, the information obtained in answer to this 
question provides a measure of the rapidityof acceptance of this 
farming practice. In a few areas, such as those in which rice 
culture has been long established, the exact year of starting 
irrigation would be difficult for the farmer to report. For that 
reason, the earlier years have been grouped together. Data for 
single years are shown only for the more recent years. The 
groupings were made in a manner to provide some comparisons 
with data collected for the 1955 Survey. 

Some farm operators, who had recently changed farms, no 
doubt reported the year that they began irrigation on the farm 
they were operating in i960. No attempt was made to obtain 
followup data for this item for questionnaires which did not show 
the year in which irrigation was begun. For such farms, totals 
are shown under "Year not reported." State Table 10 provided 
data by single years back to and including 1955. The years 1950 
to 1954 are included in one group, the years 1945 to 1949, in 
another, and the years 1944 and earlier in another group. The 
report of the 1955 Survey of Irrigation in Humid Areas presented 
figures by single years for the year in which irrigation was be- 
gun from 1955 back to 1946. The data were grouped for 1945 
and earlier years. 

Constructed Reservoirs.— No provision was made for securing 
the size of the constructed storage facilities either in terms of 
total area or in acre-feet of water impounded. The statistical 
tables include data for both the number of farms reporting con- 
structed reservoirs and the number of reservoirs. Data for nat- 
ural lakes and natural ponds are presented under the heading 
"Source of water." If there was no answer to the inquiry, "How 
many constructed ponds, pits, dugouts, or constructed reservoirs 
of any kind for storing irrigation water are there on this place?" 
and the source of water was given as "Springs and seepage" or 
"Farm runoff," the number of constructed ponds, etc., was esti- 
mated when 10 or more acres of crops other than rice or cran- 
berries were reported. Only occasionally was an estimate of 
more than 1 made for an individual farm. 



Source of Water.— The i960 questionnaire provided for reports 
ing the percentage of the total water supply used for irrigation 
obtained from one or more of the following sources: 



INTRODUCTION 



xv 



a. Wells 

b. Natural streams and rivers 

c. Springs and seepage (not from streams) 

d. Farm runoff (not from streams) 

e. Natural lakes and natural ponds 

f. Drainage ditches 

g. City, town, or community water supply 

h. Purchases from irrigation or drainage company or district 

i. Other 

The percentages on individual questionnaires were totaled to 
see if they equalled 100 percent. When percentages were not 
reported, or their total did not equal 100 percent, estimates or 
adjustments were made. If the correct answer was not ascer- 
tainable from other information on the questionnaire, the neces- 
sary facts were obtained by correspondence with the farm oper- 
ator. 

For each questionnaire the percentage figures reported were 
applied to the total acreage irrigated to determine the equivalent 
acres irrigated from each source of water. If necessary, the re- 
sulting acreages were rounded in a manner so that their total 
would equal the total acreage irrigated. Water sources are in 
two broad groups, viz, "ground" or "surface." Wells and springs 
and seepage are considered to be ground sources of water. Nat- 
ural streams and rivers, farm runoff, natural lakes and natural 
ponds, and drainage ditches are considered to be surf ace sources 
of water. It was not possible to determine the natural source of 
the water obtained from cities or that which was purchased from 
irrigation or drainage companies. However, these two water 
sources are of minor importance in the 30 Eastern States. Irriga- 
tion organization sources were reported only in Arkansas and 
Florida. 

State Table 4 shows the number of farms reporting each source 
of water and the equivalent acres irrigated from each source. In 
State Table 5, farms reporting a combination of various sources 
of water are listed in the same order that water sources are 
listed on the <|uestionnaire. Data for farms whose operators re- 
ported several sources are included only once in the totals. For 
example, farms whose operators reported wells and streams as 
the source of water are included under the grouping "Wells" and 
are subtitled "Wells and streams." f>aUi for these farm.-' are not 
included again under "Natural streams and rivers." The other 
sources include such sources as canals (for example, the Frie 
Barge Canal of New York). 

Generally, most farms obtained irrigation water from a single 
source and the significant data in many of the tables may be 
analyzed by examining the figures for the important sources of 
water without considering the data for the several groups of 
farms obtaining water from more than one source. 



Method of Application of Water.— The 1960 Survey question- 
isted five specific methods by which irrigation water 
could be applied. If in a respondent's opinion his method of 
applj ing irrigation water did not fit one of the listed categories, 
he could report his method by supplying his own description. 
Thus, if a water tank was used in watering recently transplanted 
citrus trees(as was the case in a few instances in Florida), that 
method was an acceptable report for "other." The six categories 
- rmitted an almost automatic classification of the method 
of applying irrigation water were, as follows: 

a. Portable pipe and sprinklers 

1). Fixed overhead irrigation 

c. Furrows or ditches 

d. Flooding 

e. Subirrigation 

f. Other 



When the questionnaire did not have any of these methods re- 
ported, an answer based on the method of application used by 
other farms in the same county was provided during the editing 
process. However, if the other farms in the county used various 
methods of application, the answer was determined by a member 
of the technical staff or through correspondence. Entries of 
gated-pipe reported under "Other* were transferred to "Furrows 
or ditches" or "Flooding," depending on the crop irrigated. 

More than one method of irrigation may have been utilized on 
a farm in 1960. Combinations of methods were separated during 
tabulation. More than one method may have been used to irrigate 
the same field or tract and,in such cases, the total area irrigated 
by the several methods may exceed the total acres of land irri- 
gated. 

A report for acres was required for each method of irrigation. 
During the editing process fractional acreage was converted to 
the nearest whole number and the total of the acres listed for 
the various methods was checked and made to equal the total 
acreage irrigated, except in those cases where more than one 
method was utilized to irrigate the same acreage. State Table 3 
presents the total acres irrigated by each method in each State. 
State Table 6 gives the acreage irrigated by the various methods 
or combinations of methods used in applying irrigation water. 

Type of Power Used for Pumping.— The questionnaire for 1960 
listed four types of power used for pumping water. A check box 
for "None" was provided for reporting if no power was used. No 
power may be required when water flows to the land by artesian 
action or by some other form of gravity, or under pressure as in 
the case of city water. Farms for which the type of power was 
not indicated by the respondent are included in the tables under 
"Farms not reporting type of power." 

A number of farmers reported the use of more than one type of 
power. The tabulating firocedures provided for the obtaining of 
data for the following power combinations: Gas engines and 
diesel engines, gas engines and electric motors, gas a 
and tractors, diesel engines and electric motors, and diesel 
engines and tractors. The tabulation program did not provide for 
combination of other sources of power nor for combination of 
tractor and electric sources of power. There were 243 farms 
with such combinations of power sources. These were distril)- 
uted by State as follows:

IRRIGATION IN HUMID AREAS 



The 243 farms with power obtained from these combined sources 
were included with the source "gas engine." 

Crops Irrigated in I960.— The 1960 Survey questionnaire pro- 
vided for the farm operator to report the acreage of each crop 
irrigated and the number of times the crop was irrigated. Ten 
crops, including pasture, were listed separately. Additional 
space was provided for the identifying of any other irrigated 
crop together with the acreage irrigated. The reporting of frac- 
tional acreage was provided for all crops except corn, hay, and 
pasture. 

Information on the number of times that crops were irrigated in 
1960 is published, where such information is available and 
meaningful. Because of the nature of cranberry and rice cul- 
ture, the number of times these crops were irrigated is not given 
in the tables. The number of times irrigated is not shown for 
crops which were subirrigated as, in many cases, this is a con- 
tinuous process. Some growers were not able to report the num- 
ber of times irrigated for vegetable crops. No effort was made 
to obtain this information for short-season vegetables when it 
was not reported. 

If the number of times irrigated was not given for 50 or more 
acres of a crop, other than rice, cranberries, and vegetables, 
letters were sent to farm operators asking for this information. 
For acreage ranging from 5 through 49, for which the number of 
times irrigated was not reported, the number of applications of 
water was supplied during the editing process on the basis of 
reports on other questionnaires for the same area. When not re- 
ported, the number of times irrigated was not supplied during the 
editing process when the acreage irrigated was under 5. 

When part of a crop was irrigated one number of times and 
part, another number of times, and when the total acres irrigated 
for a crop was 20 acres or more, the acres irrigated for each 
part and the farms reporting were counted separately underthe 
appropriate grouping by number of times irrigated in Table 12. 

During the editing process, the area reported for the various 
crops irrigated on each farm was totaled and this total was 
checked against the total acres of land irrigated. If the summa- 
tion gave a total in excess of the acres of land irrigated on a 
given farm, the difference was checked to see if double-cropping 
was the cause of the difference. If the difference was not the 
result of double-cropping, changes were made after correspond- 
ence, or on a judgment basis if the difference was small. 

Supplementary Uses of Irrigation.— Irrigation water is for pur- 
poses other than to sustain and increase vegetative plant growth. 
Farm operators were asked in I960 to answer the following in- 
quiry: 

16. Have you used irrigation for any of the following: 

a. Preventing frost damage? 

b. Applying fertilizer materials? 

c. Easier land preparation? 

d. Other? (describe) 

As noted, the inquiry made no mention of the year in which a 
practice was initiated or carried out. Some of the replies may 
have related to an activity for a year prior to 1960. Among the 
other uses of irrigation water reported were: 

1. Replacing watering equipment on transplanters 

2. Applying insecticides 

3. Applying fungicides 

4. Watering livestock in fields 

5. Harvesting cranberries 



6. Land leveling 

7. Making compost 

SUMMARY OF STATISTICS 

Statistics for the United States.— The relative importance of 
irrigation of agricultural lands in the Humid Areas to the total for 
conterminous United States is shown by the following data from 
the 1959 Census of Agriculture:

According to this latest census, 39,101 farm operators in the 30 
Humid-States Area irrigated 1,798,832 acres of farmland in 1959. 
They comprised 12.8 percent of the conterminous United States 
total number of farms with irrigation and their irrigated acreage, 
5.4 percent of the United States irrigated farm acreage. More 
farmers, than those who actually irrigated land in 1959, are 
equipped to irrigate at least a part of their land-holdings. Be- 
cause of weather conditions, economic conditions, or other con- 
ditions, a farmer equipped for supplying supplemental waterto 
his land may not do so every year. Those who do supplement 
the available soil moisture, may have sufficient water supplies 
and equipment to irrigate additional acres. 

Farmers in the Humid Areas, as in the Irrigation States, are 
continuing to equip their farms for irrigation at an accelerating 
rate. The increase in the irrigated acreage in the Humid Areas 
did not keep pace with the increase in the number of irrigated 
farms between 1954 and 1959.

Statistics for Humid Areas.— Of the 39,103 farm operators with 
irrigation in the 1959 Census of Agriculture, 29,777 met the 
criteria for inclusion in the 1960 Survey of Irrigation in Humid 
Areas. The principal test for inclusion was that the 1959 farm 
operator must either have been a 1960 farm operator or must have 
been supplanted on the same land by a 1960 farm operator. The 
29,777 total comprised 4,600 who did not respond to the mailed 
inquiry and were not canvassed in the field followup. 

The 29,777 farms with irrigation in 1960, had 1,865,178 acres 
irrigated in that year. This total irrigated area in 1960 was 
slightly in excess of that reported for the immediately previous

year, as recorded in the 1959 Census of Agriculture. North 
Carolina had more 1han one-fi fth of the 30-State total number of 
farmers with irrigation in 1960 but, as an average, each farm oper- 
ator in North Carolina irrigated fewer acres than those in other 
States. The most frequently irrigated crop in North Carolina was 
tobacco. Arkansas, Florida, and Mississippi had the largest 
total area irrigated in 1960. Rice was the leading irrigated crop 
in Arkansas and Mississippi and citrus fruits and vegetables, in 
Florida. These three States also had the highest average of 
irrigated land per farm among the 30 States included in the sur- 
vey. 

The total land area of the irrigated farms, included in the 1960 
Survey, was 11,083,788 acres and of this total 16.8 percent, or 
1 865,178 acres, was irrigated in 1960. Wells were the source 
of the water for more than three-fifths (61.7 percent) of the irri- 
gated acreage, and natural streams and rivers were the water 
sources for about one-seventh (14.3 percent) of the area irrigated. 
The water for smaller, but significant, acreages, varying by 
States, was furnished by natural lakes and ponds, subirngation, 
drainage ditches, farm runoff, and springs and seepage. Con- 
structed reservoirs were reported on 15,252 of the 29,277 irri- 
gited farms. The number of constructed reservoirs totaled 
32,948. 

On most of the irrigated farms, some source of power, other 
than gravity, was utilized by the operator in getting water to his 
crops. Gas engines were reported as the source of power by 
15,480 farm operators, electric motors by 4,822, and tractors by 
4,360. Definite reports of "No power" were made by 985 opera- 
tors and 5,044 failed to report the type of power used for pump- 
ing. 

Irrigation water can be used for purposes other than to add to 
the available soil water for crop production. When light frost 



or slightly below freezing weather conditions occur severe dam- 
age can be averted by applying water tothe ground surface or as 
a spray over the vegetative growth. This supplemental use of 
irrigation water was given more often than any other, being 
reported by 3,684 farm operators. About 3,000 (2,986) farm 
operators reported the use of irrigation water to distribute ferti- 
lizer and 2,231 the use of water as an aid in land preparation. 



Of the 158 farms with 1,000 or more acres irrigated in 1960, 
141 were located in Arkansas or Florida. Nearly one-fourth of 
the total number of 29,777 irrigators were tenant farm operators. 
The "Year in which irrigation was begun on the place" was not 
reported for 7,158 farms. For 4,600 of this latter group (those 
who failed to mail back a report) no effort was made to estimate 
the beginning date. Definite reports indicated that for 8,351 
farms irrigation was first begun on the farm after the calendar 
year 1955. 



For the 30-State group, the largest single irrigated crop acre- 
age in 1960 was rice with 424,657 acres. This was followed by 
soybeans with 281,300 acres, and cotton with 245,924 acres. 
Irrigated vegetable acreage, totaled 271,641 acres with snap 
beans, tomatoes, and sweet com together contributing about 40 
percent of the irrigated vegetable acreage. Fruits and nuts, 
inclusive of cranberries and other berry fruits were harvested on 
161,899 acres of irrigated land. Irish potatoes, not grouped with 
vegetables, were produced on 94,739 irrigated acres, tobacco on 
89,211 acres, and nursery and greenhouse crops on 4 1,660 acres. 
For purposes of the 1960 Survey, pasture was a listed crop and 
164,537 acres of such land were reported as irrigated. State 
Table 12 and County Table 1 indicate the geographic distri- 
bution of the irrigated crops.

PREFACE 



Volume V, Special Reports, comprises one of the volumes presenting final summaries and 
results for the 1959 Census of Agriculture. Part 3, Ranking Agricultural Counties, presents 
statistics for acres of specified crops, numbers of specified livestock, and selected items 
of agricultural production for the leading counties of the United States. 

The 1959 Census of Agriculture was taken in conformity with the Act of Congress of 
August 31, 1954 (amended August 1957), which codified Title 13, United States Code. 

The compilation of statistics and the preparation of this special report were under the 
supervision of Ray Hurley, Chief, Agriculture Division. James M. Lindsey and Virgil L. 
McClain, Jr., planned and supervised the preparation of the statistical tables. The maps 
were prepared under the supervision of William T. Fay, Chief, Geography Division.

INTRODUCTION 



RANKING AGRICULTURAL COUNTIES 



Introduction.— This report presents statistics for the leading 
counties in the United States for selected items. The position 
in rank is based upon data from the 1959 Census of Agriculture. 
Comparative data and rank for the 1954 Census also are shown 
for the leading counties. 

The leading counties were determined by the size of the agri- 
cultural resource, or production item, selected as a basis for 
making the ranking. The data are given for the 100 leading 
counties for most selected items; however, if the commercial 
importance of an item was limited to only a few areas, the num- 
ber was reduced to the 50 leading counties. 

Method of Ranking the Counties.— The leading counties were 
determined by the size of the selected item of inventory, acre- 
age, or production for the county. The county with the largest 
total for the selected item was ranked first; the- county with the 
next largest total , second; et cetera. 

than half of the tables present two related items with 
the rank of each county for each item. For example, number 
sold and value of sales are given in the table for cattle and 
calves sold alive, and acres and bushels harvested are shown 
in the table for wheat. The 100 leading counties for one item 
are often not the same for the related item. For instance, 
Turner County, South Dakota, ranks 11th in acres of oat 
vested for grain, but ranks S8th in Iwshels of oats harve 

Qualifications of Data and Rankings.— Data for leading agri- 
cultural counties usually indicate agricultural area 
cial importance. The group of 100 or 50 leading counties usu- 
ally accounts for a significant part of the United States total, 
as indicated by Table 1. The data on leading counties are of 
special interest, not only to the residents and farmers of those 
counties, but to the residents and farmers of adjoining counties, 
and of the State as a whole. 

Commercial production of specific agricultural commodities, 
such as rice or flax, is concentrated in two or three areas, while 
cattle sold and land from which hay was cut are dispersed over 
a wide area. The dot maps for the items presented indicate 
clearly the extent of, or lack of, concentration. Characteri sties 
of the land, soil conditions, and climate, as well as mechani- 
zation, specialization, and improved farming practices such as 
disease control, seed selection, irrigation, and use of fertilizer, 
have been important factors affecting the degree of concentra- 
tion and intensity in the production of many agricultural com- 
modities. 

It is important to note that the rank of counties is based on 
data for a single year. Unusual weather or economic conditions 
prevailing in a specific area in 1959 may have had a significant 
effect upon the ranking of counties in the area. Drou^JU, a 
killing spring freeze, floods, storms, etc., may have had an ab- 
normal influence upon agricultural production in some ooui 
Significant changes in rank of an individual county, or group of 



counties, could result if data for several years were used as a 
basis for establishing rank. 

Ranking of a county is influenced by the size (total land area 
or total farm area) of the county. It may be a leading county 
only because of its size, and due to the fact that a large por- 
tion of the land in the county was cropland from which predomi- 
nantly one crop was harvested. 

Table 2 presents the 100 leading counties based on the best 
available overall measure of farm production— the gross value of 
all farm products sold. 

Ranking of counties for the different types of livestock was 
based on number on hand or on number sold. Selection of lead- 
ing counties in livestock products was based on quantity sold 
or value of sales. For crops, the ranking was usually based on 
the number of acres harvested. The quantity harvested, for the 
counties ranked on the basis of acreage harvested, is usually 
given in the same table. The relative ranking of the county on 
the basis of [Toduction is shown provided the county was one of 
the leading 100 counties in production for that item, and pro- 
vided it was one of the 100 leading counties in acreage for that 
item. The ranking of all tree fruits and g-apes, for which acre- 
age harvested data were not available, was based on the number 
of trees or vines of all ages. 

Definitions and Explanations.— Th e definitions and explana- 
tions given here are limited to a few items. Complete and de- 
tailed definitions and explanations may be found in Volume I of 
the Reports for the 1959 Census of Agriculture. 

A Farm.— Places of less than 10 acres in 1959 were counted 
as farms if the estimated sales of agricultural products for the 
year amounted to at least S250. Places of 10 or more acres in 
1959 were counted as farms if the estimated sales of agricul- 
tural products for the year amounted to at least $50. Places 
having less than the $50 or $250 minimum estimated sales in 
1959 were also counted as farms if they could normally lie ex- 
pected to produce agricultural products in sufficient quantity to 
meet the requirements of the definition. This additional quali- 
resulted in the inclusion as farms of some places en- 
in farming operations for the first time in 1959 and [.lace.-, 
affected by crop failure or other unusual conditions. 

For the 1954 Census of Agriculture, places of 3 or more acres 
were counted as farms if the annual value of agricultural prod- 
ucts, whether for home use or for sale but exclusive of home- 
garden products, amounted to $150 or more. Places of less than 
3 acres were counted as farms only i f the annual sales of agri- 
cultural products amounted to $150 or more. A few places with 
very low agricultural production because of unusual circum- 
stances, such as crop failure, were also counted as farms if 
they normally could have lieen expected to meet the minimum 
value or sales criteria.

PREFACE 



This report presents data on farm mortgage indebtedness as of January 1. 19G1, and 
on taxes levied on farmland in 1980. The data include the amount of mortgage indebt- 
edness, the debt held by principal lending agencies, and interest charges, with some related 
information on number of farms, land in farms, value of farms, and assessed value of 
farmlands, and taxes levied on farmland in r.iiio. Data are presented for the conterminous 
United Slates, fur geographic divisions, and for the 48 States. The data are estimates 
based on a special mail survey of owners of farmlands as reported in the 1959 Census of 
Agriculture. 

This report was prepared cooperatively by the Bureau of the Census. United States 
Department of Commerce, and the Economic Research Service, Dnited States Department 
of Agriculture, It continues a series of cooperative reports covering farm mortgage 
indebtedness which has been issued In conjunction with the more recent censuses of 

agriculture. 

Plans for this cooperative report were made by Kay Hurley, Chief of the Agriculture 
Division. Bureau of the Census and Norman ■' Wall, chief of the Agricultural Finance 

Branch, Farm Economics Division, Ecoi Ic Research Service of the Dnited States 

Department Of Agriculture. Must of the technical work relating to the selection of the 
sample and the processing of the data was performed by Robert Rades and Q. Francis 
Dallavalle. Gerald W. Owens. Margaret Wend, Bennie Sharp, and Lois Miller assisted 

in the planning and supervising of processing operations. Ronald Bird reviewed the 
tabulations mi farm taxes, The report was written, largely, by i.i. Francis Dallavalle,

INTRODUCTION 



Scope of the report. — This report presents statistics relating 
to the mortgage status and mortgage indebtedness of farmland 
as of January 1, 1961, and taxes levied on farmland in 1960. The 
basic information for the mortgage and tax totals was obtained 
in a mail survey of owners of land for a sample of the farms 
included in the 1959 Census of Agriculture. The data presented 
herein are estimates for all farmland. Totals are given for each 
of the 48 States comprising the conterminous United States. In 
nearly all instances, data are given for groupings of the 48 States 
which comprise the standard geographic divisions for which 
census data usually have been presented. Many of the data arc 
given for each geographic area by broad tenure classifications 
of farmland. A substantial portion of the tenure data has been 
subelassified by economic class of farm and by type of farm but 
estimates for such cross-classifications are among those available 
only for geographic groupings of States. 

In respect to farm mortgage information, estimates are given 
for the total farm mortgage indebtedness, the amount held by 
the principal types of lenders, number and types of loans on 
farmland, year in which loan on the farmland was made or 
assumed by the landowners, maturity dates of farm mortgage 
loans, terms or periods of loans, annual interest charges, and 
interest rates on farm mortgage loans by type of lender. Some 
characteristics are given fur both farmlands and fnrmowners 
free of mortgage debt as well as for those with mortgage indebt- 
edness. 

The 1960 farm tax data given in this report also are estimates 
for all taxable farmland. Farm property tax information is pre- 
sented in relation to the acreage and In relation to both market 
and assessed values of the land and buildings. 

The estimated totals for acreages of farmland, the number of 
full-owner and part-owner farms, and the distribution of farms 
and farmland by economic- class and by type of farm, have been 
adjusted to those for the 1959 Census of Agriculture. However, 
the totals presented for value of farmlands and buildings and 
farm mortgage indebtedness are for January 1, 1981, and for 
farm taxes for 1960. 

Farm mortgage statistics have been published in connection 
with several censuses Varying amounts of data relating to debt 
secured by farm real estate have been compiled by the I'.ureau of 
the Census since 1890. In the early censuses, mortgage informa- 
tion was obtained only for the farmland Of owner-operators as 

tenant-operators, even if aware of n sistence of a mortgage 

against the land they were operating, were unlikely to know the 
amount of the indebtedness. In connection with recent censuses, 
mortgage Statistics have been obtained for all farmland. At first 

the full coverage of farmland was obtained, In part, through direct 

enumeration of owner-oi>erators and, in part, through the use of 
questionnaires mailed to a sample of owners of rented farmland. 
In the two most recent censuses erf agriculture. Inquiries concern- 
ing the amount of farm mortgage indebtedness have been omitted, 
as such Information and related facts were obtained by a special 
survey for a sample of farms included in the census. 

Some comparative data from earlier censuses or surveys are 
presented in this report. A few supplementary data, compiled 



in the U.S. Department of Agriculture, have been utilized in 
making the historical presentation of the amount of farm mort- 
gage debt held by principal lenders through 1956. In most of the 
time series tables, the earliest farm mortgage figures are for 
1930 or 1940. In several instances, estimates are given only from 
the 1956 and the 1961 surveys. Many of the mortgage figures 
given in the accompanying tables are restricted to estimates for 
the 1961 survey as only 1961 data are available for such items as 
the number and types of loans and the distribution of the loans 
by various loan characteristics such as year loan was made, year 
loan was due, and term of loan. 

Historical figures dealing with farm taxes are not given in this 
report. The 1950, 1940. and 1930 Census of Agriculture reports 
present a limited amount of data for farm property taxes paid 
by owner-operators. The data for those years are further re- 
stricted to the lands of operators who reported the requested tax 
information. 

The farm mortgage debt and farm tax data are used in many 
ways and are of interest to legislators, lenders, and borrowers. 
They are used in preparing the annual Balance Sheet of Agricul- 
ture, a U.S. Department of Agriculture publication that sum- 
marizes the assets and liabilities of agriculture as an industry or 
business. Both debt and tax data are components of the parity 
index used by that department in computing parity prices for 
agricultural commodities. Support prices for certain agricultural 
commodities are based, in part, on parity prices. 

Because the data from the periodic censuses and surveys are 
used as benchmarks to adjust the annual series of farm mortgage 
and farm tax data, the D.S Department of Agriculture has par- 
ticipated with the Bureau of the Census in formulating question- 
naires and In preparing estimates. The 1961 farm mortgage and 
the I960 farm tax estimate's were prepared, in large measure, by 
the staff of the Bureau Of the Census. However, professional 
personnel of the U.S. Department of Agriculture collaborated in 
the preparation of the questionnaire; in the processing, summari- 
zation, and analysis of the data; in the expansion of the survey 
totals to represent State and National estimates; in the subse- 
quent adjustments to attain conformity with 1959 census totals 
and With distributions by tenure, by economic class, and by type 
of farm : and, finally, in the preparation of the text for this report. 

Credit needs in fanning are In excess of those required for land 
ownership. Fewer and larger farms, coupled with higher land 
values and the increased use of purchased Inputs have required 
individuals to make larger outlays of capital— money paid or 
Obtained— whether for land purchase or for stocking, equipping, 
and operating farms. In order to get a measure of total farm 
credit requirements. Information needs to be secured from ten- 
ant-operators, landlords, and owner-operators. Accordingly, in 
the I960 Sample Survey of Agriculture conducted in the fall of 
that year, the Bureau of the Census included a series of inquiries 
dealing with farm operator and farm landlord debts. Esti- 
mates giving borrowings of farm operators and unpaid obli- 
gations of their landlords which were associated with the opera- 
tion of farms, are given in Volume V, Tart 5: 1960 Sample Survey 
of Agriculture.

FARM MORTGAGE DEBT AND FARM TAXES 



Basic information from censuses of agriculture. — The census of 
agriculture questionnaire for the conterminous States in 1959, as 
in 1954, carried only one inquiry in regard to farmland indebt- 
edness. In each of these two censuses, information was required 
of approximately 20 percent of all farm operators as to the pres- 
ence or absence of a mortgage on any owned land. The inquiry 
in 1959 was as follows : 



► No D Yes O No land owned D 



The following table shows by geographic division the number of 
farms operated by full owners and by part owners, by mortgage 
status, as estimated for 1959 on the basis of the 1959 census and 
as estimated for 1961 on the basis of the survey for 1961. As 
explained on page XIV the total number of farms for both esti- 
mates is the number of farms in 1959. The estimates for the 
number of farms mortgaged and debt free for the 1959 census 
are not fully comparable with the estimates for the 1961 survey 
as the farms for which mortgage debt status was not reported 
have not been classified and included in the totals for farms re- 
ported as mortgaged and farms reported debt free. The mort- 
gage status of land owned by full- and by part-owner operators 
was used as a basis for making the mortgage estimates for farms 
operated by full owners and by part owners for the 1961 survey.

The instructions to 1959 census enumerators specified that farm 
mortgages, purchase money mortgages, land purchase contracts, 
deeds of trust, deeds to secure debt, bonds for deeds, confessions 
of judgment, and vendors" liens (deed with vendor) were to be 
considered as farm mortgages if these debts were on the land 
and buildings. Crop liens, mortgages on livestock and machinery, 
chattel mortgages, promissory notes, delinquent taxes, judgments, 
and mechanics' liens were to be excluded. 

The purpose for which a debt was incurred is not indicated by 
the existence of a mortgage on land. Borrowing, in the first in- 
stance, may have been for a purpose other than land acquisition. 
However, throughout the long history of census collection of 



mortgage statistics, emphasis has been placed on land and build- 
ings pledged as security for debts and never on the purpose for 
which the loan was made. 

The 1960 Alaska questionnaire and the 1959 Hawaii question- 
naire, for those censuses of agriculture, had two inquiries in re- 
spect to indebtedness on lands owned by farm operators. These 
were designed to ascertain whether such lands were covered by 
a mortgage and, if a mortgage existed, to obtain the amount of the 
indebtedness. The available data for Hawaii are presented in 
State table 23 of volume I (part 50) of the 1959 Census of Agri- 
culture reports. Similar data for Alaska are presented in the 
following table.

Although the amount of farm real estate indebtedness was not 
obtained in the conterminous States, either in the 1959 or 1954 
Census of Agriculture, such information was obtained in 1950 and 
in all earlier years for which data are herein presented. The 1950 
questionnaire contained the following inquiry which was re- 
quired for a sample of approximately 20 percent of the farms. 

327. Is there any MORTGAGE [ □ No 
DEBT on the laud and buildings { 
owned by you? { Q Yes. How much? . . $ /oo 



The 1950 inquiry related to all land owned by the operator and 
not to the portion retained by him in case any of his land was 
rented to others. For the census years 1930 through 1945, the 
inquiries concerning farm mortgage indebtedness were similar 
to those of 1950 but, except in 1935, were to apply to all opera- 
tors who owned a part or all of the land in the farms they were 
operating at the time of the census. In 1935, the inquiries were 
required to be answered for owners owning all the land they 
operated. 



INTRODUCTION 



XI 



For each census beginning with 1930, mortgage information 
for rented and manager-operated land has been obtained through 
a special mail survey. The mail survey plan was also utilized in 
1935 to obtain all mortgage data for land owned and operated by 
part owners, and in 1930 to obtain the indebtedness for lands 
in this same tenure group. In each survey year, the sample of 
farms was selected from the farms included in the census 
of agriculture. In 1930, the mail survey was undertaken by the 
Bureau of Agricultural Economics of the U.S. Department of 
Agriculture. In 1935, 1940, and 1945, the mail survey was con- 
ducted jointly by the Bureau of the Census and the Bureau of 
Agricultural Economics. In 1950, although the mail survey was 
made by the Bureau of the Census, the Bureau of Agricultural 
Economics cooperated in designing the questionnaires and in mak- 
ing the estimates. All mortgage data for rented and manager- 
operated lands for 1950, 1945, 1940, 1935, and 1930, and the num- 
ber of farms mortgaged and the amount of debt for the owned 
portion of part-owner farms in 1935, and the debt for the owned 
portion of part-owner farms in 1930, were estimated on the basis 
of these mail surveys. 

No mortgage data appear in the census volumes for the 1935 
and 1945 Censuses of Agriculture. The census volumes for 1930 
and 1940 presented mortgage data for owner-operators but the 
totals did not include estimates for farms for which mortgage in- 
formation was incompletely reported. Therefore, the mortgage 
data presented in this report for full owners and part owners 
for 1930, 1935, 1940. and 1945, do not agree exactly with mortgage 
data for full owners and part owners as shown in earlier census 
reports for those years. 

Sample for the 1961 sample survey. — The sample for the 1961 
survey was selected from farms included in the 1959 Census of 
Agriculture. The sample of farms for the sample survey was 
selected from farms included in Che sample of approximately 20 
pen-cut of the farms used for the 1959 Census of Agriculture. 
(See page XVIII of the Introduction to volume II of the reports 
for 1959 Census of Agriculture for a description, etc., of this 
sample.) The sampling rates established for each State varied 
by tenure of farm operator and by economic class of farm. The 
rates for each of the three major farm-oi>erator-tenure groui>s 
(full owners, part owners, tenants, and managers) were varied 
in order to provide a sample adequate insofar as possible to pro- 
vide estimates for mortgage indebtedness for the three major 
tenure groups in each State. Within the three major tenure 
groups, the sampling rates were varied by economic class of farm 
(see page XVII for a description and definition of economic class 
of farm.) The farms with larger value of farm products sold, 
are larger in size, have a higher value of farm land and build- 
ings, are more frequently indebted, and have a greater amount 
of debt than do farms with a lower value of farm products sold. 
Therefore, a larger proportion of farms with a high value of 
farm products sold than of the farms with a low value of farm 
products sold was included in the sample for the 1961 survey. 
Because of the small number of farms (specified farms) con- 
taining 1,000 or more acres or with a value of $100,000 or more 
farm products sold, there were included in the sample all such 
farms in Delaware, Rhode Island, and Nevada, one-half of such 
farms in Arizona, and one-third of such farms in Wyoming. 

Table 1 presents (a) the sampling rates established for the 
1961 survey and (6) the number of farms selected by application 
of these rates. 

The number of farms selected for the 1961 farm mortgage 
and farm tax survey -was 129,033. This total represented 3.5 
percent of all farms included in the 1959 Census of Agriculture. 
The questionnaires for the 1959 Census of Agriculture indicated 
that the lands in these sample farms were owned by 220,224 
owners. By States, the number of selected farms ranged from 284 
in Rhode Island — for which State all farms included in the 
sample for the 1959 census were included — and 730 in New 



Hampshire to 5,101 farms in Texas and 5,004 farms in Iowa. The 
1961 survey questionnaire was not mailed to all owners of the 
220,224 tracts. The mortgage and tax information was not 
applicable to land owned by Federal, State, and local government 
agencies. The names of such agencies appeared for 5,406 farms. 
Neither was the 1961 survey questionnaire mailed to the land- 
owner included in the 1960 Sample Survey of Agriculture, which 
preceded the 1961 survey. There were approximately 900 of these 
landowners. Survey questionnaires could not be mailed to an- 
other group of 5,504 landowners because of incomplete addresses. 
A total of 208,128 survey questionnaires were actually mailed at 
the first mailing. 

The questionnaires for the 1961 survey. — Owners of farmland 
were the source of information regarding both farm mortgages 
and farm taxes. Further, since the mortgage and tax survey was 
planned to supplement the 1959 Census of Agriculture, and since 
it was logical and advantageous to relate data collected in the 
survey to those which had been secured in the 1959 enumeration, 
the mortgage and tax inquiries were combined into one survey 
questionnaire. By this combination, economies were realized in 
the methods of conducting the survey, particularly in selecting 
the sample, in the mailing out and receiving of questionnaires, 
and in the editing and other processing activities connected with 
the returned questionnaires. 

One version of the questionnaire was used for landlord-owners 
of farmland and another for operating owners. The question- 
naire for landlords identified the portion of a landlord's holding 
for which a report was required by giving the name of the lessee 
or tenant of the land as recorded in the 1959 Census of Agricul- 
ture. 

Property taxes may be levied nn la) real estate, (6) tangible 
personal property, and (c) other personal property. In Dela- 
ware, New York, and Pennsylvania, the (6) and (e) classes 
of properly are not usually subject to general property taxation. 
Hence, for these three States, both the landlord-owner and the 
operating-owner questionnaires were modified to reflect the situ- 
ation in these States. Thus, in all. four questionnaire forms 
were used in the l!Xil survey. Facsimiles of these four ques- 
tionnaires are shown on pages XXVII to XXX. 

The inquiries in the mortgage and tax sections of the survey 
questionnaire were more detailed than in previous surveys. 

Mailing of questionnaires. -The first mailing of the question- 
naires was made in January 1961. An explanatory letter from 
the Director of the Bureau of the Census appeared on the face of 
each questionnaire. A facsimile of the letter and questionnaire 
appears on page XXVI. 

Three mailings of the questionnaire were made, covering a 
time span of about nine weeks. The first mailing was begun on 
January 10. 1961, and was completed February 7. For those 
landowners who had not replied, a second mailing was begun on 
February 8 and was completed March 3. A third mailing was 
Started .March 2 and was completed March 24. Questionnaires 
used in the second and third mailings were stamped "second 
request" or "third request," whichever was appropriate, as a 
reminder to the respondent. 

Special letters were sent to respondents whose replies to the 
farm tax questions were incomplete or inconsistent with other 
reports in the area or with assessed values and market values 
of the land owned. 

Out of 208,128 landowners to whom a questionnaire was sent 
in the first mailing, reports were received from 179,811, or 86.4 
percent, of reports received, 143,221, or 68.8 percent of the first 
total, were usable after editing for mortgage and/or tax data. 
As a percentage of mailings, usable reports ranged from 52 per- 
cent in Louisiana to 79 percent in Wisconsin. The proportion 
of usable returns ranged between 70 and 79 percent in 22 States, 
between 60 and 69 percent in 19 States, and between 50 and 59 
percent in 7 States.

FARM MORTGAGE DEBT AND FARM TAXES 



Questionnaire processing. — Many incomplete questionnaires, 
with usable information for mortgages and/or taxes, were used 
for making survey estimates by obtaining additional information 
from landowners or by supplying estimates for essential missing 
data. For example, a missing land value was usually estimated 
for individual questionnaires if the amount of taxes or the mort- 
gage information was given. The value reported on the 1959 ques- 
tionnaire or on other 1959 questionnaires for farms with similar 
characteristics, as reflected by size, tenure, economic class, and 
type of farm, was useful as a basis in estimating missing values. 

If a 1959 landowner reported he had sold his land since 1959, 
or if it was learned that he had died in the interval following 
the 1959 enumeration, estimates for individual landlords were not 
made. Government owned land, including land in Indian reserva- 
tions, was considered to be mortgage debt free and also not sub- 
ject to real estate taxes. Corporation owned land was also con- 
sidered to be debt free unless an amount for mortgage debt was 
reported. However, information was sought as to taxes for 
corporation owned land. 

Information regarding age of operator, off-farm work, and 
other income of the farm operator was taken from the following 
inquiries of the 1959 Census of Agriculture and used for tabulat- 
ing purposes :

Likewise, the codes for type of farm and economic class of 
farm for the farms included in the survey were taken from the 
questionnaire for the 1959 Census of Agriculture. 

The data compiled for the 1961 survey related to farms included 
in the 1959 Census of Agriculture. If the farmland in a farm 
had changed since the 1959 census, the data from the 1961 survey 
were adjusted through the use of a computer program so that they 
related to the farmland included in the farm for the 1959 Census 
of Agriculture. For example, if an owner-operator had increased 
the size of the farm he operated since the 1959 census, the data 
(acreage, value of land and buildings, amount of mortgage debt, 
amount of taxes, assessed value, etc.) were adjusted so that they 
related to the farm as it existed in 1959. The questionnaires for 
the 1961 survey, sent to landlords, specified the name of the 1959 
lessee or tenant and the acreage of farmland for which the ques- 
tionnaire was to be prepared. The data on the questionnaire for 
landlords were adjusted when necessary to cover only the acreage 
for 1959 on the farm included in the 1961 survey. 

Preparation of estimates. — State estimates were made for farms, 
acreage, and value of farmlands by multiplying the totals for the 
farms, acreage, and value of farmlands included in the survey 
by the sampling rate. ( See table 1.) All data for the farms and 
farmlands for the survey were tabulated separately for each 
group having a different sampling rate. Separate tabulations 
and estimates were made for farmlands for which usable ques- 
tionnaires were received. 

Usable questionnaires were not obtained for all farmlands in- 
cluded in the sample for the survey. It was necessary, there- 
fore, to make estimates for the farmland for which reports were 
not received. Table C gives by States the percentage of esti- 
mated acreage and value of land and buildings for which usable 
reports were not obtained for farm mortgage indebtedness. Table 



27 provides data showing the acreage and value of farmlands for 
which usable reports for farm taxes were not received. 

Data on the acreage and value of farmlands for which a usable 
report was not received for the survey were tabulated for each 
State for each of the three groups for tenure, viz, (1) full owners; 
(2) part owners (owned portion only) ; and (3) tenants, mana- 
gers, and the rented portion of part-owner farms. For each of 
these three groups totals were obtained for three groups of eco- 
nomic classes of farms, viz, Economic Classes I and II, Economic 
Classes III to VI, and Economic Classes VII. to LX (part-time, 
part-retirement, and abnormal farms). For full owners and 
for part owners (owned portion only), data for each of the 
group of economic classes were compiled by the mortgage status 
of the farms according to the report for the 1959 Census of 
Agriculture. Estimates for mortgaged land were calculated 
by multiplying the estimated acreage and value of the farmland 
for each of the following groups, by the ratio of the acreage 
with mortgage debt to the acreage of farmland for farmlands 
for which usable reports were obtained.

were not obtained, the amount of mortgage debt, was calcu- 
lated by multiplying the estimated value of farmland for which 
reports had not been received by the ratio of mortgage debt to

FARM MORTGAGE DEBT AND FARM TAXES 



value for all farmlands for which usable reports were received. 
Interest charges were estimated by multiplying the interest rates 
for farmlands mortgaged for the farmlands for which usable 
reports were obtained, by the amount of mortgage debt. The dis- 
tribution of mortgage debt by lender for farmlands for which 
usable reports were not obtained, were calculated on the basis 
of the distribution by lender for the mortgaged farmlands for 
which usable reports were obtained. The number of mortgaged 
farms for full owners and part owners (owned portion only) was 
calculated by multiplying the ratio for farms mortgaged for the 
group of farms for which usable reports were received by the 
number of farms for which usable reports were not received for 
each of the groups. The data given in this report represent 
totals obtained by adding the estimates for farmlands for which 
usable reports were obtained and estimates made for farmlands 
for which usable reports were not obtained. 

The estimates for the number of farms for full owners and part 
owners, the acreage, and the value of land and buildings were 
further adjusted to totals shown for all farms for each of the 
three tenure groups of farmland in the 1959 Census of Agri- 
culture. The estimates of the number of farms operated by full 
owners and part owners and the acreage of farmland for the sur- 
vey agree with the totals provided for all farms for the 1959 
Census of Agriculture. 

The value of land and buildings for the farmlands for which 
usable reports were obtained represents the estimated value as 
of January 1, 1961. For the farmland for which usable reports 
were not obtained, the value reported for these farmlands for 
the 1959 Census of Agriculture was used. 

DEFINITIONS AND EXPLANATIONS 

The farms included in the 1961 survey of farm mortgages and 
farm taxes were selected from a sample of those included in the 
1959 Census of Agriculture. 

The definitions and explanations in the 1959 report, which are 
particularly applicable to this farm mortgage and farm tax sur- 
vey, are repeated herein with additional information in regard to 
the 1961 survey. A full discussion is given for new items of 
inquiry. 

Census definition of a farm. — The basic unit for surveys of 
farm mortgages and farm taxes has been a farm. The number 
of farms and their composition are determined, in large measure, 
by the definition of a farm. The definition of a farm and. like- 
wise, of the constituent acreage has not been constant throughout 
the period for which mortgage data are presented. The defini- 
tion of a farm, for a given survey, has always been the same as 
that used in the immediately preceding census of agriculture. 
Since the 1959 farms established both the base for selection of 
ownership tracts to be included in the 1961 survey of farm mort- 
gages and farm taxes and the universe totals for acres of farm- 
land and number of farms (full owners and part owners only) 
and since interest in mortgage and tax data is centered in the 
latest figures, the 1959 Census of Agriculture definition of a 
farm is presented in more detail than that for any prior census. 
Reference is made to the definition used in an earlier census only 
when the comparability of data is affected. 

For the 1959 Census of Agriculture, the definition of a farm 
was based primarily on a combination of "acres in the place" and 
the estimated value of agricultural products sold. 

The word "place" was defined to include all land on which 
agricultural operations were conducted at any time in 1959 under 
the control or supervision of one person or partnership. Con- 
trol may have been exercised through ownership or management, 
or through a lease, rental, or cropping arrangement. 

Places of less than 10 acres in 1959 were counted as farms if 
the estimated sales of agricultural products for the year amounted 



to at least $250. Places of 10 or more acres in 1959 were counted 
as farms if the estimated sales of agricultural'products for the 
year amounted to at least $50. Places having less than the $50 or 
$250 minimum estimated sales in 1959 were also counted as 
farms if they could normally be expected to produce agricultural 
products in sufficient quantity to meet the requirements of the 
definition. This additional qualification resulted in the inclusion 
as farms of some places engaged in farming operations for the 
first time in 1959 and places affected by crop failure or other 
unusual conditions. 

To avoid biases arising from an enumerator's personal judg- 
ment and opinion, the Bureau did not give enumerators the defi- 
nition of a farm. Instead, enumerators were instructed to obtain 
questionnaires for all places considered farms by their operators 
and for all other places that had one or more agricultural oper- 
ations. In 1954, enumerators were instructed to fill question- 
naires on the same basis as in 1959. In 1950, agricultural oper- 
ations were defined to include every place of 3 or more acres, 
whether or not the operator considered it a farm, and every 
place having "specialized operations," regardless of the acreage. 
"Specialized operations" referred to nurseries and greenhouses 
and to places having 100 or more poultry, production of 300 or 
more dozen eggs in 1949, or 3 or more hives of bees. In the three 
last censuses, as a result, questionnaires were filled for a consid- 
erable number of places that did not qualify as farms. The 
determination as to which questionnaires represented farms was 
made during office processing operations and only those ques- 
tionnaires meeting the criteria for a farm were included in the 
tabulation. 

For both the 1950 and 1954 Censuses of Agriculture, places of 
3 or more acres were counted as farms if the annual value of 
agricultural products, whether for home use or for sale but 
exclusive of home-garden products, amounted to $150 or more. 
Places of less than 3 acres were counted as farms only if the 
annual sales of agricultural products amounted to $150 or more. 
A few places with very low agricultural production because of 
unusual circumstances, such as crop failure, were also counted 
as farms if they normally could have been expected to meet the 
minimum value of sales criteria. 

In the censuses from 1930 to 1945. enumerators were given a 
definition of "farm" and were instructed to obtain reports only 
for those places which met the criteria. According to this defini- 
tion, farms included all places of 3 or more acres, regardless of 
the quantity or value of agricultural production, and places of 
less than 3 acres if the value of agricultural products, whether 
for home use or for sale, amounted to $250 or more. Because of 
changes in price level, the $250 minimum resulted in the inclusion 
of varying numbers of farms of less than 3 acres in the several 
censuses taken during this period. Generally, the only reports 
excluded from tabulation were those taken in error and those 
showing very limited agricultural production, such as only a 
small home garden, a few fruit trees, a small flock of chickens, 
etc. In 1945, reports for places of 3 acres or more were tabulated 
only if at least 3 acres were in cropland and/or pasture or if the 
value of products in 1944 amounted to at least $150. 

The decrease in the number of farms in 1950 and 1954, as com- 
pared with earlier censuses, was partly due to the change in farm 
definition, especially witn respect to farms of 3 or more acres in 
size. Some of the places of 3 or more acres that were not counted 
as farms in 1950 and 1954 because the value of their agricul- 
tural production was less than $150 would have qualified as farms 
if the criteria had been the same as in earlier censuses. 

For 1959. the decrease in the number of farms as compared with 
all prior censuses resulted partly from the change in farm defini- 
tion. The fact that sales of agricultural products in 1959 were 
used resulted in the exclusion of some places that would have 
qualified as farms had the value of agricultural products alone 
been considered. The increase in the acreage minimum also had 



INTRODUCTION

an effect. The reduction in the number of farms due to change 
in definition, 1954 to 1959. is shown in the Introduction to volume 
II. 

For inclusion as a farm or as farmland, it was necessary for 
a tract (or tracts) of land comprising the entire holding of one 
individual, partnership, or corporation to meet the established 
acreage and sales criteria, even though the holding was locally 
thought of as being a farm. This was true even if the landowner 
was a participant in a Government program, such as the Soil 
Bank and his land was only temporarily out of productive 
agricultural use. 

Land in farms. — For 1959, 1954, and 1950. the land to be in- 
cluded in each operating unit was determined from the operator's 
answers to questions concerning the total number of acres owned, 
the total number of acres rented from others or worked on shares 
for others, the total number of acres managed for others, and 
the total number of acres rented to others or worked on shares 
by others. Except for managers, the acres owned and the acres 
rented from others or worked on shares for others were first 
added together and then the acres rented to others or worked 
on shares by others were subtracted. The result represented 
the number of acres in the operating unit. The test of what 
constituted a farm was applied to these residual acres. The 
number of acres in a managed operation was the difference be- 
tween the total acreage managed and any part of the managed 
land that was rented to others or worked on shares by others. In 
each census year, if a hired manager also operated land on his 
own account, the operating unit which was managed for pay and 
the own-account lands were considered to be separate farms. As 
the definition of a farm changed, so did the acreage counted as 
farmland. In censuses prior to 1950, enumerators were instructed 
to exclude all land rented to others before apportioning the land 
retained by an own-account operator between acreage owned and 
acreage rented from others. Likewise, acreage managed for oth- 
ers was supposed to represent residual acres in ease a portion of 
the managed lands was rented to others or worked on shares by 
others. 

The acreage designated in the tables as "land in farms" con- 
sists primarily of "agricultural" land — that is, land used for 
crops and pasture or grazing. It also includes considerable 
areas of land not actually under cultivation nor used for pasture 
or grazing. For example, the entire acreage of woodland and 
wasteland owned or rented by farm operators is Included as land 
in farms unless it wis being held for nonagrioultural purposes 
or unless the acreage was unusually large. For 1959 and 1954, 

if a place had 1,000 or more acres of w Hand not pastured and 

wasteland, and less than 10 i>ercent of the total acreage was 
used for agricultural purposes, the acreage of woodland not pas- 
tured and wasteland was reduced to equal the acreage used 
for agriculture. The procedure used in 1950 for excluding 
unusually large acreages of woodland not pastured and wasteland 
differed slightly from the one used in 1959 and 1954. In 1950. 
adjustments were made in places of 1,000 or more acres (5,000 
or more in the 17 Western States) if less than 10 percent of the 
total acreage was used for agricultural purposes. 

Except for open range and grazing land used under Government 
permit, all grazing land was to be included as land in farms 
provided the place of which it was a part was a farm. Grazing 
land operated by grazing associations was to be reported in the 
name of the person chiefly responsible for conducting the busi- 
ness of the association. Land used rent-free was to be reported 
as land rented from others. All land in Indian reservations that 
was used for growing crops or grazing livestock was to be in- 
cluded. Land in Indian reservations that was not reported by in- 
dividual Indians and that was not rented to non-Indians was to 
be reported in the name of the cooperative group that used the 
land. In some instances, an entire Indian reservation was re- 
ported as one farm. 



The determination of whether rented or managed land was 
privately or publicly owned was made from the answers to the 
question on the census of agriculture questionnaire asking for 
the names and addresses of the landlords. Public land in farms 
is that owned by Federal, State, or other governmental agencies. 

Ownership and tenure of farmland. — For this study, it was neces- 
sary to distinguish between ownership of farmland and tenure 
of operator of farmland. The latter term is used to designate 
the manner or condition under which land is held for conducting 
agricultural oi>erations. Land may be owned by an individual 
or by united or associated individuals. Joint ownership of land 
may be vested in members of a family, such as husband and 
wife, in the heirs of an undivided estate, in other types of part- 
nerships, in private corporations, in quasi-public corporations, 
or in public agencies. Land need not be owned in fee simple or 
need not be free of debt to be classified as owned. 

A farmland owner can be a farm operator or a landlord. He 
can be both an operator and a landlord or an owner-operator and 
a renter of another's land. Occasionally, an owner of farmland, 
by reason of unusual circumstances, rents either all or a portion 
of his own land to another operator, and, at the same time, rents 
land from another owner. Corporations which conduct farming 
operations must operate through an intermediary who is classi- 
fied as a farm manager. Land operated by a hired manager can 
be owned by a manager's employer or can be rented by the em- 
ployer from other landowners. Nearly all identifiable corpora- 
tion-owned acreage was treated as mortgage free but, as a gen- 
eral rule, only public-owned acreage was treated as tax free. 
Since a questionnaire was usually sent to identifiable private 
Corporations for the tax information, these private corporations 
had an opportunity to report indebtedness if any existed against 
the real estate. Such reports of indebtedness were accepted. 

Land owned. — All land that the ojierator and/or his wife held 
under title, purchase contract, homestead law, or as heir or 
trust I" an undivided estate :il the time of enumeration is con- 
sidered as owned. For a partnership, all the land owned by any 
of tin' partners and operated as a partnership was to be included 
as land owned. Land allotted in trust to an Indian and any res- 
orption land assigned to him for his own use was considered as 
land ou mil by I he operator. 

Land rented from others. — This item includes not only land that 
Hie operator rented or leased from others bul also land he worked 
on shares for others and land he occupied rent-free. Grazing 
land used under Government permit or license is not included. 

Land rented to others. — This item includes all land rented or 
leased to others, except land leased to the Government under the 

Soil Bank, and all land worked by others on shares or on a rent- 
free basis. For the most part, the laud rented to others repre- 
sents agricultural land but it also includes land rented for res- 
idential or other purposes. The tenant or sharecropper is con- 
oid, -red as the operator of land leased, rented, or worked on 
shim-, even though his landlord may su|x>rvise his operations. 
The landlord is considered as operator of only that portion of the 
land not assigned to tenants or croppers. 

Land managed. — This item includes all tracts of hind managed 
for one or more employers by a person hired on a salary basis. 
A hired manager was considered to be the operator of the land he 
managed since he was responsible for the agricultural operations 
on that land and frequently supervised others in performing 
those operations. Managed land was always to he reported on a 
separate questionnaire whether or not Hie manager also operated 
a farm on his own account. 

Farm operator. — The term "farm operator" is used to designate 
a person who operates a farm, either doing the work himself or 
directly supervising the work. He may he the owner; a member 
of the owner's household; a hired manager; or a tenant, renter, 
or sharecropper. If he rents land to others or has land worked 
on shares by others, he is considered as operator only of the hind 



XVI 



FARM MORTGAGE DEBT AND FARM TAXES 



which he retains for his own operation. In the case of a partner- 
ship, only one partner is counted as an operator. The number of 
farm operators is considered to be the same as the number of 
farms. 

The classification by tenure, as applied both to farm operations 
and the farms for the 1959 census follows : 

a. Full owners operate only land they own. 

b. Part owners operate land they own and also land rented 

from others. These operations could be termed "part 
owner-part tenant." 

c. Managers operate land for others and are paid a wage or 

salary for their services. Persons acting merely as 
caretakers or hired as laborers are not classified as 
managers. If a farm operator managed land for others 
and also operated land on his own account, the land 
operated on his own account was considered as one farm 
and the land managed for others as a second farm. If, 
however, he managed land for two or more employers, 
all the managed land was considered to be farm. 

d. Tenants rent from others or work on shares for others all 

the land they operate. 

In 1959, and also in 1954, farm operators, who rented land to 
others or had land worked for them on shares, were classified 
according to the tenure under which they held the retained land. 
In 1950, farm operators were classified according to the tenure 
under which they held all lands, including any that were rented 
to others or worked on shares by others. For the 1945 and earlier 
censuses, the tenure determination was made on the basis of the 
land operated. 

Value of land and buildings. — The 1961 survey questionnaire 
requested an estimate, from each farmland owner, of the current 
value of all farm and ranch land owned on January 1, 1961, in- 
cluding the buildings on the land. For an operating owner, the 
following inquiry requested information as to the acres and value 
of any owned land which was rented to others in 1960. 



2. How many acres of the land that you now c 
rent toothers in 1960? 



. None fjl_ 



For a landlord-owner, the inquiry as to acreage rented out 
was restricted to a stated acreage rented to a named tenant, 
as reported for the 1959 Census of Agriculture. 

Mortgage status. — A mortgaged farm is one having any part of 
the land and/or the buildings on it pledged as security for debt. 
One free of debt has none of the land and/or buildings on it 
pledged as security. Since debt secured by real estate is related 
to land ownership rather than to land operation, it was necessary 
to make adjustments in some of the reported data to present 
data for farms or for farmland by tenure. 

Full owners and part owners, together, are referred to as 
owner-operators but not all land in the part-owner farms is 
owner-operated. By definition, a part owner operates rented 
acreage as well as acreage that he owns. Whereas it is possible 
to show a distribution of full-owner farms between free and 
mortgaged, this is not possible for part-owner farms included in 
the 1961 and 1956 surveys. For this latter group, the method 
of processing allowed a count to be made, by mortgage status, 
only for the owner-operated portion. However, the acreage in 
part-owner farms, both owned and rented, was distributed by 
mortgage status. Likewise, for tenant and managed farms, the 
processing plans for 1961 and 1956 did not provide for a count 
of farms free from debt and those mortgaged. But the land in 
farms of those tenures was classified by mortgage status. There- 
fore, for presentation of farm mortgage data, the rented acreage 
in part-owner farms is grouped with the acreage in tenant- 
operated farms and manager-operated farms. Data on number of 



farms, shown in the tables with the acreage for this inclusive 
tenure grouping for 1950 and prior years, relate only to tenant- 
and manager-operated farms. The number of farms for these 
earlier years was estimated on the basis of the proportion of the 
owners of such farms who had mortgage indebtedness. 

In 1961, if a full-owner operator reported mortgage indebtedness 
on land owned and rented out, but none on the acreage he re- 
tained, his farm was considered mortgage free. In some in- 
stances, the entire acreage in a mortgaged farm or a mortgaged 
tract is not under mortgage. However, the entire farm or tract 
has been treated as a unit in the compilation of the data. This 
procedure results in the understatement of the ratio of mortgage 
debt to the value of mortgaged farmland for totals and for indi- 
vidual farms or ownership tracts in those cases where the mort- 
gage does not relate to the entire acreage of farmland in the 
farm or tract. The mortgage status of the owned portion of a 
part-owner farm was determined in a similar manner. In 1956, 
the owned portion of any owner-operator's farm was always 
considered mortgaged regardless of the incidence of the debt, 
since there was no way of determining the debt status of the 
land rented out. However the comparability of data reflecting 
mortgage status of farms or farmlands was not appreciably 
affected by this change. 

Farm mortgages. — Farm mortgages are evidences of a pledge 
of farmland and buildings as security for a debt. They may 
arise through the purchase of farmland as one or several tracts, 
through a subsequent loan on all or a portion of the holding, or by 
the refinancing of an existing debt not originally secured by real 
estate. Farm mortgages include purchase money mortgages, land 
purchase contracts, deeds of trust, deeds to secure debt, bonds for 
deeds, confessions of judgment, and vendors' liens (deed with 
vendor). They do not include crop liens, mortgages on livestock 
or machinery, other chattel mortgages, promissory notes, delin- 
quent taxes, judgments, or mechanics' liens. 

More than one mortgage may be on the land under one owner- 
ship. In regard to the acreage pledged as security, several mort- 
gages can be wholly overlapping, partially overlapping, or not 
covering any of the same acreage. If two or more mortgages are 
placed on the same acreage, the first one placed is called a first 
mortgage. Although data were secured by type of loan (e.g., first 
mortgage, junior mortgage, or land purchase contract ) and for the 
acreage pledged for each loan, such totals are not provided. The 
inquiry as to the amount of each loan when made, assumed, or 
refinanced was asked in order to improve the accuracy of the 
report for the amount of unpaid principal. 

All Production Credit Association loans were considered non- 
real estate loans in this survey and, when identifiable, were 
deleted during the editing process. This was done to conform 
with practices followed in farm credit statistics prepared in the 
U.S. Department of Agriculture, even though available evidence 
suggests that real estate mortgages are being accepted as sec- 
ondary security by the Production Credit Associations in an 
increasing number of cases. In addition, loans for which the 
respondent reported no acres pledged as security were deleted if 
the lender was a commercial or savings bank, an individual, or 
"other" lender. 

Age of farm operator. — The age data in this report are restricted 
to mortgage data for full owners and part owners and are shown 
for the 1961 and 1956 surveys. Table 15 provides a count of full 
owners and of part owners, by age, and gives the estimated pro- 
portion in each of these tenure groups which had a mortgage on 
their land. The age refers to the age of the farmowner at the 
time of the census in 1959 or in 1954. The proportions mort- 
gaged reflect the debt status of the lands of these operators at 
the time of the survey (1961 or 1956). Although age of farm 
operator figures are available for six 1959 age groupings, data 
for only five groupings are shown in this report. The "under 
25 years" and "25 to 34 years" groups have been combined. 



INTRODUCTION

Off-farm work by farm operator. — One measure of the extent to 
which farm operators rely on off-farm sources for part of their 
income is the number of days which they worked off their farms 
during the calendar year covered by the census. The 1959 inquiry 
cautioned the respondent to include work at a nonfarm job, 
business, profession, or on someone else's farm but not to include 
exchange work. 

Off-farm income, whether from personal services, investments, 
etc., has more significance when related to indebtedness than 
when related to taxes. Therefore, for this report, a limited 
amount of data regarding days worked off the farm for pay or 
profit is presented for the number of mortgaged farms operated 
by full owners and by part owners (owner-operated portion only ) . 

Farm taxes. — All questions in the farm taxes section of the 1961 
survey questionnaire must be read as a group in order to com- 
prehend the nature of the data collected, or published. For ease 
of reference, the tax section of the survey questionnaire ( used in 
all except three of the conterminous States) is reproduced on 
page XXV in its entirety. The (a), (6), and (c) subinquiries 
of question 3 were omitted for the three excepted States, viz, 
Delaware, New York, and Pennsylvania. 

Although the several States are legally independent of one 
another in determining their respective arrangements for taxa- 
tion, the basic concepts and principles of property taxation are 
similar from State to State. As is to be expected, there is a 
range in the terminology, classification of property, administra- 
tive arrangements, the tax calendar, and rate of assessment. 
Since much of the administration of the property tax rests with 
local government officials, the variety in procedures and rates 
found within a State has been effectively weighted, for the 
recent surveys, by the method employed for selection of farms 
included in the surveys. 

In discussions of the base for property taxation, a sharp (lis 
tinction is usually made between two major categories — real 
property and personal property. Real property consists Oi land 
and any structures or other improvements on il. Personal prop- 
erty includes not only tangible items such as farm machinery 
and equipment, livestock, and furniture. Iml also intaiigibli' per 
sonal property such as money, bank deposits, slocks, bonds, mort- 
gages, and oilier such assets which have value for exchange pur 

poses rallier than for direct use. Practically .-ill prlvatelj owned 

real property is legally subject to the "general" property tax 
throughout the I'niieii siaies. intangible personal property, al 

the other extreme, is in most Stales legally exempt from general 
property taxes although in many instances subject to certain 
special property taxes. In most States, at least some kinds "I" 
tangible personal properly are within the scope of the general 

property tax but legal provisions apply widely for the partial or 
complete exemption of personal property, or for dealing with it 
by special property taxes 

Projierty taxes are those conditioned on ownership of property. 
The term, as commonly used, includes general property laxes 
relating to property as a whole, real and personal, tangible or 
intangible, whether taxed at a single rate or at classified rates: 
and taxes on selected types of property, such as motor vehicles or 
certain or all intangibles. 

The meaning of "assessment" which is relevant to this report 
is "an official valuation of property . . . for taxation." Two 
levels of "assessed value" must be recognized — the gross value 
before deduction of exemptions and the net amount of assessed 
value actually subject to tax. Under the general proi>erty tax 
system the valuations officially recorded for all kinds of taxable 
property, at any particular location, are taxed at the same total 
rate, or at a set of related rates. This does not mean, of course, 
that the tax will have a uniform relation to the real or "full" 



value of all taxable property since, by law or in practice, the rela- 
tion of the taxable value to the actual market value may differ 
materially among various classes of property. 

A landowner may be paying taxes on his real property to several 
taxing districts. In addition to his State and county, he may 
be paying taxes to one or more of the following: Township or 
city, a school district, a weed district, a road improvement dis- 
trict, a fire district, a health district, a mosquito abatement 
district, a watershed conservancy district, a sanitary district, 
a hospital district, a drainage district, an irrigation district, etc. 
Some of the charges or burdens laid upon real property are in 
the nature of special assessments. An effort was made in the 
1961 survey to record separately special assessments and to ex- 
clude such amounts from farm taxes. Mention was made spe- 
cifically only of drainage and irrigation assessments for excep- 
tion from the farm tax bill. It was expected that other charges 
levied, not according to the value of the property but according 
to the assumed benefits, would have been included in the amount 
reported for special assessments. 

The concept of what constitutes farm and ranch properties, for 
which the assessed value was to be reported in question 3 and 
the total taxes in question "i. is indicated by the (a), (5), and (c) 
subinquiries of question 3. The year to which the taxes relate is 
more accurately indicated in question 3 than in question 5. Ques- 
tion 3 specifies the "tax bill you received in 1960" whereas question 
5 is not as explicit in language as it refers to "total taxes in 1960." 
It can be inferred that, since the survey was conducted in early 
1961. the taxes reported are. to all intent and purpose, those levied 
in 19tH). Taxes levied in 1960 should not be confused with taxes 
paid in 1980 although the two sums, if known, may not have dif- 
fered greatly. 

If the respondent was a landlord, the total tax bill was allo- 
cated to land in the sample farm on the basis of the ratio of the 
value of land in the sample farm or tract to the value of all land 
owned. The allocation of laxes between real estate and personal 
properly was based on the relationship of assessment values for 

the two groups of property. 

Economic class of farm. Because of change's in I he basic classi- 
fication, dala are presented by economic class of farm only for 
1981, the classification of farms or farmland was made on the 
basis of the classification of the farm in which the farmland was 
im hilled for i be 1959 Census of Agriculture. 

The classification of farms by i nomic class represents group- 
ings of farms thai are similar in characteristics and size of opera- 
lions. The economic classes for 1959 were established on the 
basis of one or more of four factors : (1) Total value of all farm 

products sold, i ,'i number of days the farm operator worked oil' 

the farm. ( .? I the age of the farm operator, and I }) Hie relation- 
ship of income received by the Operator and members of his house- 
hold from nonfarm sources to Hie value of all farm products sold. 

institutional farms. Indian reservations, agricultural experiment 

stations, and grazing associations were always classified as 
"abnormal." 
Farms were grouped into two major categories, commercial 

farms and oilier farms, mainly on the basis of total vail 1* 

products sold. In general, all farms with a value of sales amount- 
in- I., $2,600 or more were classified as commercial. Farms with 

a value of sales of $50 to $2,499 wen- classified as conn -cial if 

the farm operator was under 65 years of age and (/) he did not 
work off the farm 100 or more days during the year and (2) the 
income received by the Operator and members of his family from 

sour.es ..iber than the farm operated was less than the value of 
all farm products sold. The remaining farms with a value of 
sales of $50 lo $2,499 ami institutional farms and Indian reserva- 
tions were included in one of the groups of "other farms." 



XVIII 



FARM MORTGAGE DEBT AND FARM TAXES 



Commercial farms were divided into six economic classes on 
the basis of the total value of all farm products sold, as follows : 

Value of farm 
Economic class of farm products sold 

I $40,000 or more 

II $20,000 to $39,999 

III $10,000 to $19,999 

IV $5,000 to $9,999 

V $2,500 to $4,999 

VI ' $50 to $2,499 

1 Provided the farm operator was under 65 years of age, and (1) he did 
not work off the farm 10O or more days, and (2i) the income that he and 
members of his household received from sources other than the farm 
operated was less than the total value of farm products sold. 

Other farms were divided into three economic classes as 
follows : 

a. Class VII, part-time. — Farms with a value of sales of farm 

products of $50 to $2,499 were classified as "part-time" 
if the operator was under 65 years of age and he either 
worked off the farm 100 or more days or the income he 
and members of his household received from sources 
other than the farm operated was greater than the total 
value of farm products sold. 

b. Class VIII, part-retirement. — Farms with a value of sales 

of farm products of $50 to $2,499 were classified as 
"part-retirement" if the farm operator was 65 years old 
or over. Many of these are farms on which the income 
from sources other than the farm operated was greater 
than the value of sales of agricultural products. Others 
are residential, subsistence, or marginal farms. In 
previous censuses, the age of the farm operator was not 
a criterion for grouping farms by economic class. Since 
the number of elderly people in our population has been 
steadily increasing during recent years, a separate clas- 
sification for farms operated on a part-retirement basis 
was considered important for an adequate analysis of 
the agricultural structure. 

c. Class IX, abnormal. — All institutional farms and Indian 

reservations were classified as "abnormal," regardless 
of the value of sales. Institutional farms include those 
operated by hospitals, penitentiaries, schools, grazing 
associations, government agencies, etc. A more detailed 
description of the comparability of 1959 economie-class- 
of-farm definitions and data with those for prior cen- 
suses is given in chapter XI. 
For purposes of this report, combinations of the above-listed 
1959 economic classes were made as follows : 
Commercial farms 
Classes I and II 
Classes III and IV 
Classes V and VI 

Classes VII to IX, other farms (part-time, part-retirement, 
and abnormal) 
Data by economic class of farm are presented only for full 
owners and for the owned portion of part-owner farms and are 
presented only for mortgaged farms. 

Type of farm. — Data are presented by type of farm for only 
1961 and only for farms of full owners and for part owners 
(owned portion only). The classification of each farm by type 
was the same as that for the farm for the 1959 Census of Agri- 
culture. 

To be classified as a particular type, a farm had to have sales 
of a particular product or group of products amounting in value 
to 50 percent or more of the total value of all products sold during 
the year. 

The types of farms, together with the products on which type 
classification is based, are as follows : 

Type of farm Source of cash income 

[Products with sales value representing 50 percent 
or more of total value of all farm products sold] 

Cash-grain Corn, sorghums, small grains, soybeans for 

beans, cowpeas for peas, dry field and 
seed beans and peas. 
Tobacco Tobacco. 

Cotton Cotton. 



Type of farm Source of cash income 

Other field-crop Peanuts, potatoes (Irish and sweet), sugar- 
cane for sugar or sirup, sweet sorghums 
for sirup, broomcorn, popcorn, sugar beets, 
mint, hops, and sugar beet seed. 

Vegetable Vegetables. 

Fruit-and-nut Berries, other small fruits, tree fruits, 

grapes, and nuts. 

Poultry Chickens, chicken eggs, turkeys, and other 

poultry products. 

Dairy Milk and cream. The criterion of 50 percent 

of total sales was modified in the case of 
dairy farms. A farm having value of sales 
of dairy products amounting to less than 
50 percent of the total value of farm prod- 
ucts sold was classified as a dairy farm 
if— 

(a) Milk and cream sold accounted for 
more than 30 percent of the total value 
of products sold and — 

(6) Milk cows represented 50 percent or 
more of total cows and — 

(o) The value of milk and cream sold plus 
the value of cattle and calves sold 
amounted to 50 percent or more of 
the total value of all farm products 
sold. 

Livestock other 

than dairy and 

poultry Cattle, calves, hogs, sheep, goats, wool, and 

mohair except for farms in the 17 Western 
States, Louisiana, and Florida that quali- 
fied as livestock ranches. 

Livestock ranches Farms in the 17 Western States, Louisiana, 

and Florida were classified as livestock 
ranches if the sales of livestock, wool, and 
mohair represented 50 percent or more of 
the total value of farm products sold and 
if pastureland or grazing land amounted 
to 100 or more acres and was 10 or more 
times the acreage of cropland harvested. 

General Field seed crops, hay, silage. A farm was 

classified as general also if it had cash 
income from three or more sources and did 
not meet the criteria for any other type. 

Miscellaneous Nursery and greenhouse products, forest 

products, mules, horses, colts, and ponies. 
Also all institutional farms and Indian 
reservations. 

The data for farms classified by type of farm for 1959 are not 
comparable with those for prior censuses largely because of the 
change in the criteria for commercial farms. A detailed discus- 
sion of the comparability of data presented by type-of-farm 
classifications for the 1959, 1954, and 1950 censuses is given in 
chapter XII, volume II of the reports for the 1959 Census of 
Agriculture. 

Period to which estimates for 19G1 survey relate. — The estimates 
for the amount of mortgage indebtedness, mortgage indebtedness 
by type of lender, interest rates, interest charges, and character- 
istics of mortgage loan, and the value of farm land and buildings 
(except for farmlands for which usable reports were not ob- 
tained) relate to January 1, 1961. However, these estimates 
relate to the farms and for farmlands included in the 1959 Census 
of Agriculture. The estimates for number of farms ; the number 
of farms classified by tenure of operator, by economic class of 
farm, by type of farm, by age of farm operator, and by days of 
work off the farm by the farm operator ; number of farms mort- 
gaged ; acreage in farms : acreage of farmland mortgaged relate 
to approximately November 1959. (The period of the enumera- 
tion for the 1959 Census of Agriculture. ) 

The data on real estate taxes refer to taxes levied in 1960 on 
farmlands included in the 1959 Census of Agriculture. The data 
on assessed value refer to the assessed value in 1960 of farmlands 
included in the 1959 Census of Agriculture. Data on personal 
property taxes for full-owner farms refer to taxes levied in 1960

SUMMARY OF DATA 

Presentation of data. — Data for farm mortgage indebtedness are 
presented in tables 2 to 26 and for farm taxes in tables 27 to 32. 
Data in these tables relate only to the 48 States in the contermi- 
nous United States, as the special survey did not cover Alaska 
and Hawaii. Most of the data are presented for 3 regions, 9 geo- 
graphic divisions, and each of the 48 States. (See map on page 
VIII.) 

Amount of farm real estate debt. — Indebtedness secured by farm 
real estate on January 1, 1961, for the conterminous United States, 
is estimated at $12,812,210,000, an increase of 41.3 percent over 
the $9,066,153,000 estimated for January 1, 1956. The amount of 
outstanding indebtedness, $5,579,278,000 on January 1, 1950, has 
more than doubled in the succeeding 11-year period. Although 
the absolute increase during the 1956-1961 interval of 5 years 
was in excess of that shown for the 1950-1956 interval covering 
6 years, the percentage of increase was smaller for the more 
recent period. The percentage increase for the 1950-1956 interval 
was 62.5 percent as contrasted with 41.3 percent for the shorter 
more recent period. The estimate for 1961 represents a new 
peak in farm mortgage indebtedness, exceeding the previous 
census-year peak reached in 1925 by $2,899,560,000 (see table 11). 
The 1961 total also exceeds the $12.2SS.759,000 estimated by the 
U.S. Department of Agriculture for January 1. 1960, the previous 
high in an annual series extending back to 1910. 

The value of farmland and buildings in the period January 1. 
1956, through January 1, 1961, increased from $106,576,916 to 
$131,001,698,000, or 22.9 percent. Thus, from a balance sheet 
standpoint, the equity position of all farmland owners as a group 
improved during the 5 years although the debt-to-value ratio 
did not reflect such an improvement in financial condition. How- 
ever, the impact of Indebtedness is borne not by all farmland 
owners, but by those who are responsible for liquidation of the 
debt. Farmland in mortgaged ownership increased in value 
by 3.4 percent while that free decreased 6.4 percent; the total 
value of the mortgaged lands increased by .'.1.0 percent while 
that of mortgage-free tracts increased by only 17.2 percent ; and 
the ratio of debt to value of the mortgaged tracts rose from 
25.0 percent to 20.3 percent. 

Daring the 1956 to 1961 period, real estate values continued 
to rise. These advances not only made it possible for farmland 
owners to borrow more on land which they could pledge as 
security but also required prospective buyers to borrow more 
to buy land. Collateral information indicates that other factors 
contributed to the rise in indebtedness. Among these was an 
increase in credit -financed transfers, a decrease in the amount 
of down payment on credit-financed transfers, and an increase 
in farm operating costs financed by real estate secured credit. 
Some farmowners have also refinanced short-term debts with 
real estate secured long-term debts in an attempt to reduce annual 
interest charges and annual principal payments. 

Mortgage debt on full-owner-operated farms ($5,899,430,000) in- 
creased 25.0 percent from 1956 to 1961. In the same jK'riod, the debt 
on the owner-operated part of part-owner farms ($3,969,679,000) 
increased 71.7 percent, while the combined debt on land oper- 
ated by tenants and managers and on land leased by part 
owners ($2,943,101,000) increased 44.7 percent. These differential 
rates of increase had a marked effect on the proportion of mort- 
gage debt falling within each group, particularly for owner- 
operated lands. In the period 1956-1961, the number of farms 
operated by full owners decreased 22.9 percent whereas farms 
operated by part owners declined by only 6.7 percnt. If there 
had been no change in farm definition, the drop in the number 
of full owners in the meantime would not have been as large 
but would have been above the percentage for part owners. For 



1961, the distribution of the debt by tenure was 46.0 for full 
owners, 31.0 for part owners (owned portion only), and 23.0 
percent for rented lands of part owners, tenants, and managers. 
For 1956, the distribution for the same groups was 52.1, 25.5, and 
22.4 percent, respectively! 

Full-owner operators of mortgaged farms had an average 
equity of $21,240 in their farms on January 1, 1961, up $7,046 
from their equity on January 1, 1956. The average amount of 
indebtedness increased from $5,191 to $8,058. The equity in 
mortgaged farmland and buildings owned by part-owner opera- 
tors increased from $18,397. to $26,413 in the period between 1956 
and 1961 and the average debt rose from $6,278 to $10,22.8. The 
equity of part owners increased less, percentagewise, than for 
full owners as the increase in debt per farm for part owners 
was greater than for full owners while the increase in average 
value per farm was about the same for both groups. 

Farm mortgage indebtedness increased from 1956 to 1961 in 
all of the geographic divisions except New England. The decline 
in New England resulted from rather substantial debt reduc- 
tions in four States which were not fully offset by a large increase 
in Maine and a smaller one in Vermont. Increases in the other 
divisions ranged from 17 percent in the Middle Atlantic to 61 
percent in the Pacific. With the exception of New Jersey and 
the four New England States mentioned above, mortgage in- 
debtedness increased in all States from 1956 to 1961. 

Number of mortgaged farms. — The number of mortgaged farms 
operated by full and part owners (owner-operated portion only) 
on January 1. 1961, was estimated to be 1.120,284. a decline of 12.3 
percent from the number on January 1, 1956. This compares 
w iih a decline of 22.7 percent for all full- and part-owner-operated 
farms which were estimated to be mortgage free. For the two 
tenures combined, mortgaged farms in 1961 represented 38.3 
percent of the total number compared with 35.4 percent in 1956. 

< If the farms operated by full owners. 31.6 percent was mort- 
gaged in 1961, an increase of 1.5 percentage points from 1956. 
i if part-owner farms, 47.9 percent was mortgaged in 1961, com- 
pared with 42.4 percent in 1956. Although all full-owner and 
part-owner-opera ted farms declined in number from 1956 to 
1961, the number of mortgaged part owner farms increased. 

In most of the geographic divisions, I lie proportion of mortgaged 
full-owner farms to all full-owner farms increased from 1956 to 
1961. Shiiu 1 1 decreases in the proportion of mortgaged full-owner 
farms to all full-owner farms occurred in the Middle Atlantic 
Division, 1.6 percentage points, and in the West South Central 
Division. 0.2 percentage points. 

In 1961, the proportion of mortgaged part-owner farms to all 
part-owner farms was greater than in 1956 in all geographic divi- 
sions. The change from 1956 was smallest in the New England 
Division (0.2 percentage points), and the largest (7.8 percentage 
points), in the East North Central Division. 

Acres in mortgaged farms.— It is estimated that 360,588,816 acres 
were in mortgaged ownership tracts in 1981, and this acreage rep- 
resented 32.2 percent of the total land in farms. This is an 
increase from 1956 of nearly 12 million acres. During this period, 
total land in fa*rms declined about 40 million acres. In many 
instances, the entire acreage in a mortgaged farm, or in a mort- 
gaged ownership tract, is not under a mortgage. Acres in mort- 
gaged full-owner farms declined slightly less than 11 million 
acres during the 1956 to 1901 period, a decline that was more than 
offset by an increase in the amount of mortgaged land for the 
other two tenure groups. Although there was a difference in the 
amount of change from 1950 to 1901 in the absolute amount of 
land in mortgaged farms among the tenure groups, the proportion 
of mortgaged land to total land in farms increased lor all three 
groups. The proportions of hind in mortgaged farms to total land 
in farms for full-owner-operated, part-owner owned and operated, 
and rented and managed land including part-owner rented land 
in 1961, were 39.6, 51.4, and 17.0 percent, respectively. In 1956, 



XX 



FARM MORTGAGE DEBT AND FARM TAXES 



the proportions mortgaged for the three groups were 37.5, 44.9, 
and 16.4 percent, respectively. 

The average size of mortgaged full-owner farms in 1961 was 
estimated to be 189 acres. This compared with an average of 
l. r >2 acres for debt-free farms and 165 acres for all farms of this 
tenure. Mortgaged part-owner farms (owner-operated portion), 
averaged 352 acres per farm, 46 acres more than debt-free farms 
and 24 acres more than the average for all farms for the same 
tenure group. 

Compared with 1956, the 1961 average size of mortgaged full- 
owner farms increased more than debt-free full-owner farms. 
However, the increase in the average size of mortgaged part- 
owner farms (owner-operated portion) from 1956 to 1961 was 
almost double that which occurred in debt-free farms in the 
same group. 

Mortgaged full-owner farms were larger in average size than 
debt-free farms in all of the geographic divisions in 1961. With 
the exception of the Pacific Division, the same situation existed 
in 1956. In two geographic divisions, Mountain and Pacific, 
mortgaged part-owner farms (owner-operated portion) in 1961 
were slightly smaller than debt-free farms. In 1956, mortgaged 
part-owner farms (owned portion) in the West North Central 
and Mountain divisions were smaller than those without mort- 
gage debt. 

Value of mortgaged farms. — The value of farmland and build- 
ings in mortgaged ownership on January 1, 1961, was estimated at 
$4.8,623,473,000, or about $135 per acre. Farmlands free of mort- 
gage debt were valued at $82,378,225,000, or slightly more than 
$108 per acre. Each group — those mortgaged and those free of 
mortgage — increased in total value, between 1956 and 1961, by 
slightly more than $12,000 million. The spread between mort- 
gaged and debt-free farmlands of $26 in the average value per 
acre for 1961, is much larger than the $17 difference for 1956, 
and the $11 difference for 1950. 

Debt-free and mortgaged farmlands operated by full owners 
have a higher per acre value than farmlands for either of the 
other tenure groups. In 1961, mortgaged full-owner farms were 
valued at $155 per acre, compared with $104 for mortgaged farm- 
land owned and operated by part owners, and $151 per acre for 
mortgaged farmland operated by tenants and managers, including 
the rented portion of part-owner farms. Differences in value 
per acre between mortgaged and debt-free holdings were largest 
for land operated by tenants and managers and smallest for land 
owned and operated by part owners. 

With the exception of the Pacific Division, mortgaged full- 
owner farms in each geographic division had a higher value per 
acre than nonmortgaged farms of the same tenure. The debt 
free owner-operated portions of part-owner farms in the Middle 
Atlantic Division, on a per acre basis, were valued slightly higher 
than mortgaged portions. 

Mortgaged tenant- and manager-operated lands, including the 
rented portion of part-owner farms, had a higher value per acre 
than the debt free lands of the same tenure group in all geo- 
graphic divisions. 

Average interest rates and annnal interest charges. — The aver- 
age rate of interest on farm mortgage debt outstanding on Jan- 
uary 1, 1961, was estimated at 5.1 percent, or 0.4 percentage point 
higher than the 4.7 percent estimated for January 1, 1956. The 
increase in the interest rate on farm mortgage loans made since 
1956 reflects the same money-market conditions that resulted in 
increased yields for United States Government bonds, Aaa cor- 
porate bonds, and high-grade municipal bonds. 

The average interest rate in the South Atlantic Division, which 
was higher than in any other division in 1956 and one of the two 
highest in 1961, increased from 5.1 percent in 1956 to 5.4 percent 
in 1961. The highest absolute increase in the average interest 
rate from 1956 to 1961 was in the Pacific Division. The average 



rate in the Pacific Division, which equaled the South Atlantic 
high in 1961, increased from 4.9 percent in 1956 to 5.4 percent in 
1961. The average rate of interest in the West North Central 
Division was lower than in any other division both in 1956 and 
1961, but the absolute increase from 1956 to 1961 (0.4 percentage 
point) was greater than in five divisions (0.3 percentage point), 
was the same as in two other divisions, and was not as large as 
in the Pacific Division (0.5 percentage point). 

The average rate of interest on debt outstanding on January 
1, 1961, varied widely by type of lender within each geographic 
division. Without exception, the highest average interest rates 
within a geographic division were on loans held by "All operat- 
ing banks" and lowest on loans held by the Farmers Home Ad- 
ministration. The spread between rates on debt held by these 
two general classes of lenders ranged from 2.0 percentage points 
in the West South Central Division to 1.0 percentage point in the 
Middle Atlantic Division. The differences among divisions within 
a lender group also were substantial for several types of lenders, 
depending upon the lending policy of the supplier of mortgage 
funds. The spread in rates charged among divisions was smallest 
(0.3 percentage point) on debt held by the Farmers Home 
Administration, resulting from a uniform nationwide rate. 

The widest divergence in the average rate of interest (1.1 per- 
centage points) was shown for debt held by the "All other" 
group of lenders. However, the range for "All operating banks" 
was from 5.4 to 6.3 percent and for individuals was from 4.5 to 
5.4 percent. The Federal land bank rate varied from 4.7 in the 
West North and West South Central divisions to 5.4 percent in 
the South Atlantic Division. 

Nearly one-third (33.0 percent) of the full owners and slightly 
more than one-fourth (27.3 percent) of the part owners reported 
a rate of interest on total farm mortgage indebtedness of 6.00 
percent or more on January 1, 1961. These percentages are not 
materially different from those for 1956 which were 33.5 and 26.6 
percent, respectively. Full owners who reported interest rates in 
the 5 percent interval (5.00 to 5.99), represented 31.6 percent of 
this tenure group in 1961 and only 23.1 percent in 1956. For part 
owners, the corresponding figures were 34.1 percent and 21.9 
percent. Rates of 5.50 to 5.99 percent, which were infrequently 
reported in 1956, were reported with greater frequency in 1961. 
For example, the percentage for full owners rose from 1.7 
percent to 12.1 percent and for part owners from 1.5 percent 
to 12.3 percent. About 20 percent of mortgaged full owners and 
22 percent of mortgaged part owners reported rates in the 5.00 to 
5.49 percent range. A larger percentage of full owners was 
paying interest rates of 7 percent or more in 1961 than in 1956. 
The percentage of part owners paying 7 percent or more as inter- 
est in 1961 remained about the same as in 1956. 

Average interest rates paid by full owners in 1961 averaged 0.1 
percentage point higher than those paid by part owners and land- 
lords for the United States. Landlords paid the lowest rates in 
four geographic divisions, the highest rates in only one division, 
and in four divisions the interest rates paid by landlord were 
equal to or exceeded those for full owners and part owners. The 
greatest difference in rates paid by the different tenure groups 
occurred in New Jersey, Florida, Arkansas, and California. In 
these States, the landlord rates were lowest. In Florida and Cali- 
fornia, the spread between full-owner and landlord rates was 
0.4 percentage point, in New Jersey it was 0.6 percentage point, 
and in Arkansas is was 0.7 percentage point. 

The amount of mortgage indebtedness against each broad ten- 
ure grouping of farmland has been multiplied by the average 
rate of interest and the resulting product has been designated 
"Annual interest charges." These figures represent what the 
mortgagors were required to pay the mortgagees during one full 
calendar year as interest. Payments on principal, commissions 
for securing or renewing a loan, abstract fees, appraisal fees, etc. 
are not included in these annual charges. 



INTRODUCTION 



XXI 



Mortgage debt by type of lender. — The amounts of farm mort- 
gage debt held in 1961 by the several lender groups are not fully 
comparable with the amounts shown by lenders for earlier years 
because of a change in the estimating procedures. For the sur- 
veys conducted prior to 1961. the estimates of mortgage debt for 
the Federal land banks, Farmers Home Administration, life insur- 
ance companies, and all operating banks for each State and the 
United States were amounts reported by these institutions and 
not the amounts estimated from the special surveys. In making 
adjustments. State by State, in the amount of debt held by the 
four types of institutional lenders, no changes were made in the 
estimated State total amount of debt. Adjustments were made 
only in the "Other lender" total. For 1961, no adjustments were 
made for either institutional or other types of lenders. The 
estimated institutional totals are as estimated on the basis of 
reports by the respondents and were not adjusted to totals for 
the four types of institutional lenders. Differences between 
totals (as published by the institution) and survey totals vary 
from 1 percent for Federal land banks to 53 percent for the 
Farmers Home Administration. The differences between the 
two sets of estimates in 1961 may be due to the following reasons : 

1. Differences in the definition of a farm as applied by the 
census of agriculture and the loaning agency. Also. 
a long-term loan made on what was once farmland may 
still be in existence against the land even though the 
land is no longer used for agricultural production. 

2. Respondent errors in reporting real-estate-secured debt 
and nonreal-estate-secured debt. This confusion in the 
mind of the respondent could arise principally in the use 
of the term mortgage, which may have a different mean- 
ing to different respondents. 

3. Lack of knowledge by the respondent of the actual mort- 
gage holder. Apparently this factor may be primary 
cause of the difference in the two totals for the Farmers 
Home Administration. At the end of I960 ibis agency 
had outstanding approximately $201 million of Insured 
farm mortgage loans most of which were held by other 
lending agencies. As the Fanners Home Administration 
serviced these loans, farmer borrowers probably did not 
know that the actual lending agency was not the Fann- 
ers Home Administration. 

4. Location for which the debt was reported. Mortgage 
loan data reported for operating banks are Classified 
according to location of the lending bank making the 
loan, not by the location of the security or borrower. 
This factor has no influence on the Inked States total, 
but may affect the distribution by States. 

5. Debt on farms not included in the 1959 Census of Agri- 
culture. Between 38,000 and 100,000 of the persons 
having whole farm Conservation Reserve contracts in 
1959. were not included in the census, because there 
were no agricultural operations on such places or the 
place was missed in the census. (See pages XXXVII 
and XXXVIII of the Introduction to volume II of the 
reports of the 1959 Census of Agriculture for data 
regarding the coverage by the 1959 census for places or 
farms covered by "whole farm" Conservation Reserve 
contracts). Approximately 9.5 percent of the farms, 4.0 
percent of the land in farms, and 3.4 percent of the crop- 
land harvested in farms or places qualifying as census 
farms were not included in the 1959 Census of Agricul- 
ture because of incompleteness of the census. No data 
are available regarding the amount and distribution of 
mortgage debt on farms, and farmland not included in 
the 1959 Census of Agriculture. 

6. Procedure used for making estimates for farmland for 
which reports were not received regarding mortgaged 
status. As explained on page XII, it was necessary to 
prepare estimates for farmland for which reports were 
not received for the 1961 survey. In order to obtain 
some measures for differences resulting from the mak- 
ing of estimates for the farmland for which information 
was not obtained, attempts were made to obtain by a 
followup survey as completely as possible reports for all 
farmland included in the survey for the States of North 
Carolina and Illinois. However, because of deaths of 
owners of farmlands and the difficulty of obtaining re- 



ports from owners living in other States, it was not 
possible to obtain reports for all farmland included in 
the survey of these two States. 

The following table indicates the percentages for farms, farm- 
land, and value for farmland for which reports were obtained for 
the regular survey and for the regular survey plus the followup 
survey.

FARM MORTGAGE DEBT AND FARM TAXES 



For these two States, the survey estimates for number of mort- 
gaged farms, value of farmland, acreage of farmland mortgaged, 
and amount of mortgage debt would not have been significantly 
different from those estimates that would have been made if 
usable questionnaires had been obtained for all the farmland in- 
cluded in the sample selected for the survey. 

According to the 1961 survey, life insurance companies slightly 
surpassed the Federal land banks as the most important institu- 
tional lender in the United States on farmland as security. Each 
of these groups hold nearly $2,600 million of the total farm mort- 
gage indebtedness. Commercial banks (termed "All operating 
banks" in the tables) also held in excess of $2,000 million. The 
estimate for the survey for mortgage loans by the Farmers Home 
Administration was $739 million. Of the total amount of mort- 
gage loans held by all lenders, individuals represented the most 
important lender class in 1961. The amount held by individuals 
exceeded by 80 percent the amount held by life insurance com- 
panies. With the exception of Federal land banks in 1940, indi- 
viduals have been the foremost lenders in the time series for 
which data are available (see table 11). 

The amount of loans held by the several lender groups varied 
by region, geographic division, and State. In 1961, commercial 
banks were the most important source of funds in two geographic 
divisions, viz, New England and Middle Atlantic. Individuals 
held the largest percentage of the amount of farmland loans in 
all other divisions. 

The distribution by geographic divisions of the amount of loans 
held by the several institutional lenders reflects, to a large degree, 
institutional lending policies. Farm mortgage debt held by life 
insurance companies is highly concentrated in the four geographic 
divisions where there is a high concentration of the value of farm- 
land and buildings. Nearly one-third of life insurance com- 
panies holdings are on lands in the West North Central Division. 
Federal land bank loans also are distributed among geographic 
divisions in about, the same manner as the value of all farmland 
and buildings. Based on the amount of indebtedness outstanding, 
the Federal land banks had placed about one-fourth of their loans 
in the West North Central Division. In the period 1956-1961, 
Federal land bank loans on farmlands had more than doubled in 
the Pacific, Mountain, and South Atlantic divisions. 

There appears to be an inverse relationship between distribu- 
tion of loans held by the Farmers Home Administration and the 
distribution of the value of land and buildings of all farms. 
More than one-third of the Farmers Home Administration loans 
are in four divisions where only one-fifth of the value of land and 
buildings is located. About half of the Farmers Home Adminis- 
tration holdings are in the four divisions representing 70 percent 
of the value of farmland and buildings. Commercial bank hold- 
ings are high in the New England, Middle Atlantic, East North 
Central, South Atlantic, and East South Central divisions com- 
pared with other lenders. Commercial bank holdings are rela- 
tively low in the West North Central, West South Central, 
Mountain, and Pacific divisions. 

Ratio of debt to value. — Table 14 presents data regarding the 
number, acreage, and value of farms operated by full owners and 
part owners, classified by ratio of debt to value. 

The ratio of mortgage debt to value of farmland and build- 
ings for mortgaged full-owner, part-owner (owner-operated part), 
tenant, and manager farms (including the rented portion of 
part-owner farms) was 27.5, 27.9, and 22.7 percent, respectively, 
on January 1, 1961. Between 1956 and 1961, the ratio of debt to 
value for all three groups increased for the first time since 1940. 
The 1956 percentages were 26.8, 25.4, and 21.3 respectively. 



The average size of mortgaged full-owner farms, for the United 
States, seems to have an inverse relationship with the ratio of 
debt to value. For 1961, this relationship did not hold for all 
geographic divisions. The same inverse relationship between 
the average size of mortgaged farms and the ratio of debt to 
value existed for the operator owned portion of part-owner 
farms, but, here again, the relationship varied by geographic 
divisions. For the United States and the several geographic 
divisions, the highest average value of land and buildings per 
farm for both tenures was for the groups having the lowest ratio 
of mortgage debt to value of land and buildings in all divisions, 
except the East South Central Division. In the latter division, 
part-owner farms in the "10-19 percent" ratio group had a higher 
average value per farm than those in the "under 10 percent" 
group. In all divisions except the Middle Atlantic, the lowest 
average value of land and buildings per farm for farms operated 
by full owners was for those in the group with the highest ratio 
of debt to value. For the 48 conterminous States as a group, 
the 1961 average value of land and buildings per farm, both for 
full- and part-owner farms, declined as the ratio of debt to value 
increased. 

For the 48 conterminous States, as a group, farmlands operated 
by their owners which had mortgage encumbrance of 50 percent or 
more, on the average, were not as large nor as valuable as those 
not so heavily mortgaged. For mortgaged full-owner farms, 
22.8 percent had a mortgage equaling one-half of the value of the 
real estate, but these farms had only 16.2 percent of the total 
land in mortgaged full-owner farms and 14.9 percent of the value. 
The corresponding percentages for part-owner farms (owner- 
operated portion only) were 22.6, 17.0, and 14.3. 

Mortgage status by age of farm operator. — Table 15 presents 
figures showing, by geographic divisions, the relationship of the 
age of full-owner operators and of part-owner operators and the 
mortgage status of the land which they owned and were operat- 
ing. Data are shown for 1961 and 1956. The ages of operators 
were those recorded in the 1959 and 1954 Censuses of Agriculture 
(taken in the closing months of those years) while the mortgage 
status of their lands was as reported for January 1, 1961, and 
January 1, 1956, respectively. 

In general, the data reveal that, as the age of an owner-operator 
increases, the proportion having mortgage indebtedness on their 
farmland decreases. For the year 1956, there was no exception 
to this relationship but for 1961 there were several relatively 
minor exceptions. These exceptions occurred in the two younger 
age groupings, affecting only the distribution of part owners in 
the East South Central Division and of both full owners and part 
owners in the West South Central Division. The general distri- 
bution pattern for both years is very similar in that for the 
"Under 35 years" group, a smaller proportion of the part owners 
had a farm mortgage on their land than was true of the full 
owners while for the three age groups comprising operators "45 
years of age and over" the reverse situation usually prevailed. 
For the 48 conterminous States, as a group, 62.1 percent of the 
full owners "Under 35 years of age" had a farm mortgage in 
1961 compared with 59.5 percent of the part owners. The per- 
centages, in the same order, for the "45 to 54 years" age group 
were 40.6 and 50.1 ; for the "55 to 64 years" group were 25.9 and 
36.1 ; and for the "65 years and over" age group were 13.5 and 
21.6. 

As between the geographic divisions, the proportion of 1961 
full owners "Under 35 years" who had a mortgage on the farm- 
land they owned and were operating, ranged from 46.9 percent in 
the East and West South Central divisions to 75.1 percent in the 



INTRODUCTION 



XXIII 



East North Central Division and 75.0 percent in the New Eng- 
land Division. For part owners the range was from a low of 
50.2 percent in the East South Central Division to 70.9 percent 
in the Pacific Division. The proportion of 1961 mortgaged full 
owners who were in the "65 years and over" class varied from 
10.0 percent in the Middle Atlantic Division and 10.1 percent in 
the South Atlantic Division to 22.8 percent in the Mountain Divi- 
sion. The range for part owners in the same age category ranged 
from 15.2 percent in the Middle Atlantic Division to 33.9 percent 
in the New England Division. 

Mortgage statistics by economic class of farm. — Economic class 
of farm data relating to farm mortgages, for this report, are re- 
stricted to mortgaged full-owner farms and to the mortgaged 
owner-operated portion of part-owner farms. An approximate 
count of the counterpart farms, those free of mortgage, by eco- 
nomic class may be obtained by subtracting the number of mort- 
gaged farms from the total count of full-owner farms as shown 
in Chapter XI : Economic Class of Farm, of Volume II of the 
1959 Census of Agriculture reports. Some characteristics of the 
free-from-mortgage farms may also be approximated by the same 
general procedure. Some similar data can also be secured for 
part-owner farms free of mortgage. 

Relatively more part owners had mortgage encumbered farm- 
land in 1961 than did full owners. This relationship held con- 
sistently for "commercial farms" and the subclasses thereof and 
for "other farms." Farms with the highest value-of-farm-prod- 
ucts-sold group were most frequently mortgaged and the propor- 
tion mortgaged declined with lower value of farm products sold 
for both full-owner and part-owner tenures. These facts are 
shown by the following data :

and the number mortgaged for each type is given in the following 
table: 



Commercial full-owner farms made up 51.7 percent of all full- 
owner farms in the 1959 Census of Agriculture. Mortgaged 
farms, operated by full owners in the commercial classification, 
accounted for 59.8 percent of all mortgaged full-owner farms in 
the United States in 1961. Mortgaged commercial farms oper- 
ated by full owners accounted for 83.7 percent of the land in mort- 
gaged full-owner farms, 79.7 percent of the value, and 78.3 percent 
of the debt. 

Mortgaged commercial farms operated by part owners com- 
prised 88.9 percent of all mortgaged part-owner farms in 1961. 
They accounted for 97.7 percent of the land, 96.5 percent of the 
value, and 90.1 percent of the debt. 

The per farm averages for size, value, and debt for mortgaged 
farms were larger for commercial farms than for noncommercial 
farms both for full and part owners. Within the mortgaged 
commercial farm group, there was a direct relationship of the 
value of farm products sold (which is a determinant of economic 
class) with average size, average value per farm, and average 
debt per farm. 

Mortgage statistics by type of farm. — A limited amount of data 
for mortgaged farms, classified by type of farm, is presented in 
table 18 for farms operated by full owners and in table 19 for 
the operator-owned portion of farms operated by part owners. 
In these tables a few farm characteristics are presented for each 
grouping. A comparison of the total number of commercial farms

The type classification of each ownership holding was that 
assigned for the 1959 Census of Agriculture. While the acreage, 
value, and indebtedness shown in table 19 for part owners relate 
to the operator-owned portion only, the type classification for this 
tenure was actually made on the basis of the income for the 
whole farm (operator-owned portion plus the operator-rented 
portion). The two tables give figures only for the 48-State con- 
terminous area and for each geographic division. Although data 
are not given in tables 18 and 19 in respect to the type of farm 
for full owners and part owners free of mortgage, such figures 
can be approximated by relating the data for the mortgaged group 
with the corresponding data given for all operators of those 
tenures, as shown in chapter XII of volume II of the 1959 Census 
of Agriculture reports. 

Loan characteristics. — Of the 732,153 mortgaged farms in 1961 
operated by full owners, 622,920, or 85.1 percent, had one mort- 
gage loan, 94,946, or 13.0 percent, had two, and 14,287, or 2.0 
percent, had 3 or more. For the 388,131 mortgaged part-owner 
farms i owner-operated portion only), the corresponding absolute 
numbers were 314,772, or 81.1 percent, 61,639, or 15.9 percent, and 
11,720, or 3.0 percent. 

The percentage of full owners whose real estate holdings were 
encumbered by more than one loan ranged from 29.2 percent in 
Arizona, 28.6 percent in Nevada, and 28.4 percent in New Jersey 
to 6.6 percent in Arkansas, 9.1 percent in West Virginia, and 9.7 
percent in Tennessee. Part owners (owner-operated portion 
only) bad more than one loan in 36.2 percent of the cases in 
Arizona and 35.0 percent in Utah and the percentage ranged 
on down to 10.4 percent in Tennessee. 

The 1961 survey questionnaire listed three types of loans, viz, 
(a) first mortgage or deed of trust; (6) second or other junior 
mortgage or deed of trust; and (c) land purchase- contract. In 
making the tabulations, first and junior mortgages were com- 
bined. Figures are presented, by States, for (i) farms reporting 
mortgages only, (2) farms reporting land purchase contracts 
only, (?) farms reporting the existence of both a mortgage and 
a land purchase contract. Type of lien data are given in table 
21 separately for both full owners and for part owners (owner- 
operated portion only). 

The type of lien (loan) was not given by approximately 27 
percent of both the full owners and the part owners. Of the full 
owners reporting the type of lien, 85.0 percent placed all existing 
loans on their real estate in the mortgage category, 12.7 percent 
placed all their loans in the land purchase contract category, and 
2.3 percent reported the existence of both a mortgage and a land 
purchase contract. The corresponding percentages for part own- 



XXIV 



FARM MORTGAGE DEBT AND FARM TAXES 



ers were 81.1, 15.1, and 3.9. Thus, mortgage debts far exceeded 
land purchase contracts in debt financing at the time of the 1961 
survey. The percentages given for land purchase contracts do 
not indicate the full importance of this kind of instrument in land 
transfers. A land purchase contract always originates with a 
sale of real estate while a first or a junior mortgage can come 
into existence at a time other than when a property is purchased. 
A mortgage may supersede a land contract after the terms set 
forth in the land contract have been fulfilled. Then, too, a mort- 
gage on land can be given as security for a debt incurred for 
capital improvement, for purchase of other capital assets, for 
operating expenditures, or in connection with a transaction not 
connected with the operation of a farm. 

Based on the data presented in table 21, land purchase con- 
tracts, though possibly not predominant in the transfer of land 
in any State, are used by the largest number of owners of farm- 
land in Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, Washington, and Texas. 
As a general rule, part owners make more purchases through the 
use of land contracts than do full owners. For example, in 
North Dakota, the State with the highest percentage of both full 
owners and part owners with land contracts, the percentages 
were, respectively, 38.0 and 43.6. Land purchase contracts were 
very infrequently reported in the northeastern States and in 
many other States in the eastern part of the United States. 
Elsewhere, the lowest percentages for full owners with land 
purchase contracts were recorded in Louisiana (5.0 percent) and 
in Missouri (6.3 percent) ; and for part owners, Missouri (8.5 per- 
cent) and Arkansas (8.9 percent). 

Mortgaged farms by days operator worked off farm. — Many full 
owners and part owners have income from work not connected 
with the farm they operated or have income from sources other 
than the farm operated and off-farm work. Some operators with 
income from sources other than the farm operated are dependent 
upon agriculture for most of their living. At the other extreme 
are those operators, whose lands are classed as farms, who have 
full employment at a nonfarm job, business, or profession. The 
income from the sale of agricultural products in the group is 
not large. In some instances, the availability of income from 
sources other than the farm operated may have determined 
whether or not a landowner qualified for the existing mortgage 
loan on his real estate. In table 22, State counts are given of 
the number of 1961 mortgaged farms operated by full owners, or 
of similarly indebted farms operated by part owners (owner- 
operated portion) , according to the number of days each operator 
worked off his farm for pay or income in 1959. (Similar data are 
given in chapter II of volume II of the 1959 Census of Agricul- 
ture reports for all operators by tenure of operator.) 

Reports from the 1959 Census of Agriculture show that 47.7 
percent of all full owners and 41.0 percent of all part owners 
worked off their farms for pay or profit in 1959. Of the full 
owners and part owners reported as having mortgage indebted- 
ness, 59.0 percent and 43.4 percent, respectively, worked at an 
off-the-operated farm job for pay or profit in 1959. Of all full 
owners, those working 100 or more days on an off-the-operated 
farm job represented 36.4 percent of the total and the corre- 
sponding percentage for those who had mortgage indebtedness 
was 45.8. The corresponding percentages for the part-owner 
group were 21.7 and 22.2. 

The number of days that a farm operator works off his farm 
is determined, in part, by the seasonable nature and the volume 
of the agricultural activities he is engaged in and by the avail- 
ability of employment off the farm and in industry. In the West 
North Central Division, only 21.9 percent of all the mortgaged 
full owners and 7.2 percent of the mortgaged part owners worked 
at jobs off the farm to the extent of 200 or more days. The maxi- 
mum percentages were as high as 48.7 percent for mortgaged full 
owners in the Pacific Division and 22.0 percent for mortgaged part 
owners in the South Atlantic Division. 



Period of loan. — The period of loan as shown in table 23 for 
full owners and in table 24 for part owners, was obtained by re- 
cording the spread between the date reported for the year in 
which a loan was to mature and the date reported for the year 
in which the same loan was made, assumed, or refinanced. For 
those loans for which the period of the loan could be computed, 
52.9 percent of the total real estate mortgage obligations of full 
owners had a total span of less than 15 years. This percentage 
figure compares with 48.1 percent of part-owner loans. Loans 
for an expected period of 30 or more years represented 11.5 per- 
cent of all full-owner mortgages as compared with 15.4 percent 
for part-owner mortgages. The percentage distribution by year 
in which loan was made was not significantly different for full 
owners and part owners. 

Number of loans. — Based on the number of loans for which a 
report was made of the year in which the loan was made, as- 
sumed, or refinanced, one-fifth of the total loans for both full 
owners (19.7 percent) and part owners (20.8 percent) became 
obligations of the landowners in 1960. More than one-half of the 
total loan obligations for both tenures came into being in the 
1955 to 1959 period, the percentage for full owners being 54.7 
and for part owners 54.6. Only 1.2 percent of the full owners 
and 0.7 percent of the part owners became obligated for an 
existing loan prior to 1940. 

Real property mortgage loans which are obligations of full own- 
ers, have a shorter maturity date than do those which are obliga- 
tions of part owners. For full owners, 73.7 percent of the loans 
existing at the beginning of 1961 were expected to mature by 
1975 or before as compared with 67.2 percent of the part-owner 
loans. 

FARM TAXES 

Total real estate taxes on farmlands. — Real estate taxes on tax- 
able farmland and buildings in the conterminous United States, 
for 1960, were estimated at $1,245,865,000. This is the estimated 
tax bill for 1,024,498,269 acres of land owned by individuals, part- 
nerships, and corporations which are not government agencies. 
This is the acreage with an estimated value of $128,308,184,000 
at the beginning of 1961 and an assessed value of $32,697,710,000 
in 1960. Real estate taxes were equivalent to a tax of $1.22 per 
acre and $0.97 for each $100 of market value. 

The average tax per acre was highest in the Middle Atlantic 
Division, $3.11, and lowest in the Mountain Division, $0.41, reflect- 
ing, in part, differences in land values. Land in the Middle 
Atlantic Division had an average value of $190 per acre compared 
with $43 in the Mountain Division. As between the States, the 
highest tax per acre, $9.21, was reported in New Jersey, and the 
lowest, $0.15, in New Mexico. Three other States, all in New 
England, reported taxes in excess of $5.00 per acre, viz, Massa- 
chusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island. Twenty-one States, 
including New Mexico, reported taxes below $1.00 per acre with 
9 of the 21 below the $0.50 per acre level. These are predom- 
inantly in the South and in the Mountain Division. 

Taxes per $100 of the estimated market value of farmland and 
buildings ranged from a high of $1.87 in New England to a low of 
$0.46 in the East South Central Division. The spread as between 
the States in the tax per $100 of estimated value was less than in 
the tax per acre. While the range for the tax per acre was from 
$9.21 to $0.15, the range for the tax per $100 of estimated value 
was from $2.19 to $0.35, reported in Maine and Alabama, 
respectively. 

Taxes per acre in most divisions were higher on land operated 
by tenants and managers than on land operated by full owners 
or part owners, due in part to the fact that land operated by ten- 
ants and managers generally had a higher value than that oper- 
ated by full owners or part owners. In some States, the land 



INTRODUCTION 



XXV 



that is tenant-operated, or manager-operated, tends to be prin- 
cipally cropland while in other States it is largely grazing land. 
Also, exemptions of homesteads are usually more applicable to 
land operated by owner-operators. Taxes per $100 of value also 
were generally higher on land operated by tenants and managers 
than on land operated by full owners, part owners (owner-oper- 
ated part), or part owners (rented part). The tax per $100 
of value in the United States averages $0.92 for land owned and 
operated by full owners, $0.90 for land owned and operated by 
part owners, $1.02 for land rented by part owners, and $1.07 for 
land operated by tenants and managers. With few exceptions, 
taxes paid per $100 of full value on rented land were higher than 
corresponding rates on operator-owned land. in all divisions. 

Real and personal property taxes for full-owner farms. — Total 
property taxes and the distribution of this total between real 
and personal property taxes were compiled from the 1961 survey 
for full-owner farms only. These data appear in table 32. Tangi- 
ble personal property is not subject to general property taxation 
in New York, Pennsylvania, and Delaware. Intangible property 
is all, or nearly all, exempt in many States (19 States in 1957) 
including New York and Delaware. Pennsylvania applies special 
property taxes to specified intangibles only. Hence the figures 
for the three States mentioned by name show the total property 
tax bill as levied on land and buildings. 

For the 48 conterminous States, 81.1 percent of the 1960 levy 
on farm property operated by full owners represented taxes on 
land and buildings. 

In three States — New York, Pennsylvania, and Delaware — 
most types of personal property were exempt from taxation. In 
the other 45 States the ratio of taxes on real estate to the total 
of real estate and personal property taxes varied from 53.9 per- 
cent in Louisiana to 91.4 percent in Connecticut. 

Assessed value of farm real estate. — Taxable farm real estate In 
the United States in 1960 was assessed at $32,697,710,000 for tax 



purposes. This was equivalent to 25.5 percent of the estimated 
market value of all taxable farmland and buildings on January 
1, 1961. 

Wide variations in the ratio of assessed to estimated market 
value of farm real estate were evident among geographic divi- 
sions and States. New England, with an estimated average ratio 
of 39.4 percent, ranked highest while the Mountain Division, 
with 16.1 percent, ranked lowest. The highest and lowest ratios 
in the individual States, 54.0 and 8.2 percent, respectively, were 
found in Rhode Island and Arizona. 

Government-owned and privately owned farmlands. — A byprod- 
uct of the 1961 Survey of Farm Mortgages and Farm Taxes was 
the estimated amount of acreage of land in census farms owned 
by the Federal government (including land in Indian reserva- 
tions) or by other government agencies. For this study, gov- 
ernment-owned lands were assumed to be both tax and mortgage 
free. The estimated government-owned farmland area and the 
area of other farmland, designated privately owned, are shown 
in table 33. 

The total farmland area of the 48 conterminous States, as 
recorded in the 1959 Census of Agriculture, was 1,120,157,789 
acres. Of the 1959 total farmland area, 95,659,520 acres, or 8.5 
percent, were estimated to be government-owned. The estimated 
value of all farmland and buildings was $128,987,659,000 at the 
time of the 1959 enumeration and $131,001,698,000 at the begin- 
ning of 1961. Privately owned farmlands, with an area of 
1,024,498,269 acres, were estimated to have a value of 
$128,308,184,000 in 1961. This total value of privately owned 
farmland was used as a base for computing the total farm real 
estate tax bill. These farmlands had an assessed value of 
$32,697,710,000 which was equivalent to 25.5 percent of the 
estimated market value.
