Author Info

  • Larson, Ronald B.

Comparisons with other curricula surveys showed that some changes occurred during the last ten to twelve years. Emphasis on business skills has increased while course work in technical agriculture has decreased. By considering customer needs and competitor innovations, departments can attempt to add more value to their educational products.
