DEVELOPMENT OF A SCALE TO MEASURE INTERESTS IN AGRICULTURAL OCCUPATIONS.
HAMILTON, WILLIAM H.; HILL, CHARLES W.
TO AID IN THE GUIDANCE OF YOUNG PEOPLE INTERESTED IN SPECIALIZING IN OFF-FARM AGRICULTURAL OCCUPATIONS, A STUDY WAS CONDUCTED TO IDENTIFY ITEMS THAT WOULD REVEAL INTEREST PATTERNS OF SUCCESSFULLY EMPLOYED ADULTS IN THE FIVE AGRICULTURAL OCCUPATION FIELDS OF PRODUCTION AGRICULTURE, ORNAMENTAL HORTICULTURE, AGRICULTURAL BUSINESS, AGRICULTURAL MECHANIZATION, AND CONSERVATION. AN AGRICULTURAL OCCUPATIONS INTEREST SCALE WAS DEVELOPED ON THE BASIS OF DATA COLLECTED FROM 767 INTERVIEWS. IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT AGRICULTURAL INTERESTS WERE PATTERNED AND THAT DISCRIMINATION AMONG AGRICULTURAL FIELDS WAS POSSIBLE. RECOMMENDATIONS WERE MADE FOR FURTHER STUDY OF BOTH THE AGRICULTURAL BUSINESS AND CONSERVATION FIELDS AND FOR USE OF THE INSTRUMENT FOR GUIDANCE. (GD)
