Projections of structural change and the future of American agriculture

, : Projections of structural change and the future of American agriculture. Size, structure, and the changing face of American agriculture: 587-627

Projections of the structure of US agriculture have been made by several agricultural economists, particularly in the years since World War II. The methods used and their results are reviewed at the outset of this paper. This is followed by a set of projections to the year 2000 based heavily on agricultural census data for recent periods with 1987 as the point of departure.
