Comparison of Certain Abilities Needed by Workers in Licensed Nurseries and Licensed Ornamental Horticulture Businesses.
Dillon, Roy Dean
To determine if separate and specialized courses of agriculture are needed by workers in licensed nurseries and licensed ornamental horticulture businesses, this study utilized questionnaires of 100 items of knowledge in agriculture. Results indicate that: (1) 84 items of knowledge in agriculture are needed by directors of these businesses, (2) 76 items of knowledge are needed by salesmen, (3) 57 items of knowledge are needed by supervisors, and (4) 36 items of knowledge are needed by field workers. Conclusions show that some basic courses and some specialized courses are needed for general directors, salesmen, supervisors, and field workers. Recommendations are that all these workers begin in a curriculum of basic courses and advance to specialized courses until the person is qualified to enter the position of his choosing. This Ed.D. thesis was submitted to Illinois University. (GB)
