Farming Systems Research Group WORKING PA.PERS
The papers in this series were prepared during the 1980 1981
academic year by members of the Michigan State University Farming Systems Research Group. Papers one through nine were prepared by individual members of the group, after much discussion, and were reviewed by members of the group prior to final revision by the authors. However, each of the papers represents the author's personal perspectives on Farming Systems Research. Each paper is different from the others. All papers are an attempt to answer the following questions:
From the perspective of my discipline what is Farming Systems Research?
What research has been done in my discipline which relates directly to Farming Systems Research?
What opportunities are there for further research from the perspective of'my discipline?
What assistance would scholars from my discipline need from other disciplines in order to carry out Farming Systems Research?
Each individual responded to these questions in his own way. Paper number ten is an attempt to summarize the perspectives of the various discipli nes represented, identifying commonalities and differences. Paper eleven sets forth the recommendations of the group for further work in this field at IMichigan State University.

This bibliography represents the collection of miscellaneous papers assembled by the Michigan State University Farming Systems Research Group during the Academic Year 1980 1981.
The members of this Group each contributed articles, copies of talks, chapters from books, working papers, and other fugitive materials which, in their individual judgements, might be useful to other members of the Group in their efforts to understand farming systems and farming systems research.
This is by no means an exhaustive summary of the literature relating to the topic. Some of the materials cited are bibliographies. And there is a vast body of literature which typically bears a broad spectrum of other classifications, which might be included in a current category defined as "farming systems research." Since individual scholars from different disciplines include different parameters in their definitions of the field, no attempt has been made here to be comprehensive.
This list of citations was assembled primarily for the use of members
of the MSU Farming Systems Research Group. It has been duplicated and added to the Working Paper series in response to numerous requests, and is made available in hopes that it will be useful to others who share similar research interests.
