On the premise that all persons with agricultural careers will be better able to function if they have at least an elementary knowledge of how agricultural research and education and farmer organizations came into being and what their roles are in modern agriculture, this unit is designed to aid in understanding the nature and importance of agricultural research and education. Each of the following questions is discussed in a short chapter: (1) What has been the role of volunteer agricultural societies? (2) What has been the role of Federal legislation? (3) What has been the role of state legislation? (4) What has been the role of farmer organizations? and (5) What has been the role of private industry? The appendix contains a listing of 92 regional and national agricultural magazines and a list of 16 sources of additional information. (WL)
