A Proposed Educational Program for Agricultural Development in Iraq.
Alsamarrae, Hatam Ali
The general purpose of this study was to develop an educational program for agricultural development in Iraq, and to identify the best method for its implementation. The proposed program was based primarily upon relevant factors identified through data collection from the following sources: official records, current literature, and the writer's knowledge and experience. Two types of models for adoption of innovation were identified and discussed. One model was developed by Everett E. Rogers and the other by Egan G. Guba and David Clark. These models were fully used in the development of the program and in the recommendations for its implementation. The main objectives of the proposed program were to have the farmers understand: the value of chemical fertilizers in crop production; its effect on the physical property of the soil; its use in crop production; and how and where to obtain the fertilizer. Different methods of instruction were suggested. Demonstration was considered the most effective. (Author/NL)
