Abstract

This analysis of labor requirements of crops in southern Alabama is designed to promote the most effective distribution of crops, particularly from the standpoint of full utilization of man- and mule-labor on the farm. ... The purpose of this report is to outline the man- and mule-labor requirements for the more common crops grown in the Southeastern Coastal Plains farming area of Alabama. Henry County was selected as being representative of much of this area.
