- the average number of agricultural workers was 51,242 annually,
- the peak employment of migrant workers numbered 18,317,
- the peak monthly employment for migrant workers occurred in the 10th month,
- and in that peak month the migrant workers made up 36 percent of Idaho's agricultural workforce.
