Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate the current earning power of contemporary upland farming from the standpoint of allocation of the limited resources. We used path analyses to clarify both the direct influence of farm size and farm efficiency on farm income, and the indirect influence of land use, labor, and capital equipment on farm income. The accounting data were collected from 21 farms which cultivated upland field crops as their main source of income. As a result we can conclude that current earning power is similar to the situation shown by Hiraishi; that large-scale farms have low efficiency and would not even meet their own operating costs in a low price economy. There is an urgent need for contemporary upland farming to improve management efficiency and to enhance profit stability. To accomplish this, it is necessary to sustain potato and sugar beet cultivation with a small fluctuation of income. And yet this type of land use depends on family labor. Therefore, it is indispensable to establish a system of cultivation techniques not premised on family labor.
