Education and Training for Agricultural Development: The Place of Institutional Farmer Training

Agriculture, in most of the developing countries of the world, occupies a unique position in the life and future progress of their peoples. Not only are most of these countries primarily based upon an agricultural economy deriving a considerable portion of their foreign exchange earnings from agricultural exports, but they also depend upon agricultural production for their expanding food requirements and the raw materials of many local industrial processes. The great majority of the population in these countries are rural dwellers deriving their livelihood from farming and related rural occupations.
