The status of Statistics teaching has not been sufficiently explored in Agricultural Colleges in Argentina. Although Statistics is considered as an important subject in different academic institutions, there is very little information about the way that it is taught in different university curricula. The aims of this study were to (a) gather information about the place of Statistics in college programs through different indicators, and (b) explore different issues concerning the teaching of Statistics in agricultural colleges, such as epistemological views, academic organization, etc. For this purpose, a survey was conducted in the main agricultural colleges in Argentina. Twenty-three teaching teams from different university answered a questionnaire. The responses were analyzed and categories were built in order to draw some conclusions. (Contains 2 tables and 2 figures.)
