Abstract

Not only have changes occurred in the way farms and farm families are run (see January 1980 issue of California Agriculture), but there have been dramatic changes within a single generation in the handling of hired labor (there is less need for it) and in the composition of rural communities (more Spanish-speaking residents are settling down, particularly in the Central Valley). This is the last of two articles on the subject.
