ALEXANDER, FRANK D.
THIS STUDY SOUGHT MAINLY TO DETERMINE THE PRESENT NEW YORK STATE COOPERATIVE EXTENSION INPUT ON FARM LABOR EDUCATION, ESPECIALLY FOR YEAR ROUND FARM LABOR, AND TO ANTICIPATE EXTENSION INPUT FOR THE NEAR FUTURE IN THIS FIELD. QUESTIONNAIRES WERE RETURNED FROM 54 OF THE 56 COUNTIES WITH AGRICULTURAL DIVISIONS, ALL 13 COOPERATIVE EXTENSION SPECIALISTS IN AGRICULTURE, 15 DEPARTMENTS OF THE COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURE, THE LEADER OF CONSUMER EDUCATION, AND THE EXTENSION STAFF MEMBER OF THE VETERINARY COLLEGE. MAJOR FINDINGS INCLUDED THE FOLLOWING--(1) 23 EXECUTIVE COMMITTEES HAD DISCUSSED YEAR ROUND FARM LABOR AND 11 HAD APPROVED EXTENSION WORK IN THAT AREA--(2) POTENTIAL FARMER PARTICIPATION IN FARM LABOR MEETINGS WAS ESTIMATED AT A LITTLE OVER 1,300 FOR 1967-68--(3) COUNTY STAFF INPUT, ASIDE FROM TRAINING, WAS 399 MAN DAYS IN 1966-67 AND WOULD PROBABLY BE 499.5 MAN DAYS IN 1967-68--(4) THE NUMBER OF COUNTY STAFFS INTERESTED IN THE LABOR RELATIONS OF NURSERY, LANDSCAPE, AND GARDEN CENTER OPERATORS WILL PROBABLY RISE FROM EIGHT (1966-67) TO 15 (1967-68)--(5) INPUT BY COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURE PERSONNEL IS EXPECTED TO RISE FROM 309 MAN DAYS (1966-67) TO 515 MAN DAYS (1969-70). THEREFORE, ATTENTION SHOULD BE GIVEN TO COLLEGE-COUNTY PROGRAM PLANNING INVOLVING SELECTED COUNTY AGENTS AND ACTIVELY CONCERNED COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURE PERSONNEL. (LY)
