Abstract
This paper focuses on the effects of the Second World War on agricultural production in Eau Claire County, Wisconsin. The American citizens' support in rationing scarce goods, buying war bonds, growing victory gardens, and countless other initiatives became vital to the allied success. It could be argued, however, that the most important home front activity was agricultural production. This paper explores the variables that made Eau Claire County agricultural production different from the rest of the nation.
