The purpose of this study is to determine, as far as possible, the cropping systems that are actually practiced in three type-of-farming areas. Three counties, Crockett, Overton, and Roane, in West, Middle, and East Tennessee, repeatedly, are included In the study. Crockett County is used as a sample area for Type-of-Farming Area III, Overton for Type-of-Farming Area XI, and Roane for Type-of-Farming Area XIV.

The cropping systems used in this study represent the crops and the number of years they are grown on a field over a five-year period. No attempt made to record the actual sequence.
