Abstract The main purpose was to find the influence of cultural pattern on farm management. Benvenuti did not compare various regional patterns of culture; within one rural community, Winterswijk, he succeeded in explaining differences in farm management by the gradual replacement of a traditional pattern of culture by a modern one. The study is an important technical contribution to rural sociology through the novel method of measuring the patterns of culture. It was demonstrated that the modern farmer kept up with the modern rate of progress both in farm management and also in many other aspects of life. The pattern of culture had an impact on a very broad range of social phenomena as well as influencing the way a farmer organized his farm.
