This survey had for its purpose the study of farm organization in Great Salt Lake Valley. It is hoped that some conclusions may have been reached as to how to improve farming conditions. The records were taken during the summer of 1915 and consequently represent the farm business for 1914. Ordinarily the period of time that has elapsed since the records were taken would be too long to justify their being published. In view of the fact, however, that the World War began in 1914 and that its effects on the prices of farm products lasted until 1921, it is probable that the farm business of 1914 resembled that of 1922 more than it has that of any year since 1914. Prices and other conditions are much nearer their 1914 and 1915 level than they have been at any time since. It seems therefore wise to drop out of consideration the period of inflated prices between 1916 and 1921.
