Can Computer Use on the Farm Build Skills for Off-Farm Jobs?
Rural Conditions and Trends, v10 n2 p43-49 2000
Data from various national farm surveys suggest that computers on farms are used predominantly for bookkeeping and financial analysis. Computers are not fully exploited to integrate information from diverse aspects of farm operations and therefore, may not help users develop the "systems skills" important in off-farm employment. Implications for agricultural and technical education are discussed. (SV)
