The results are reported of a study of how farmers' and nurserymen's wives spend their days. The study is based on diaries kept for a week in the summer of 1982. The wives spend an average of 47 hours per week on domestic and family duties plus an average of 24 hours per week on the farm. Dairy farms demand most from the women.
