Developing agricultural research personnel

Author: Sprague, E.W.
Year: [1976?]
Abstract: We all share concern in the rapidly increasing world population; many demographers now estimate that this increase may be forty percent within the next ten years. Such projections suggest that national average yields must increase forty percent, on the average, just to maintain present levels of availability of cereals (give the scarcity of new lands for crop production). Among the many factors involved in boosting these yields, is the critical requisite for trained agricultural personnel. Looking ahead, through the 70's and beyond, perhaps the development of well-trained men and women is the single most essential factor in maize improvement and is certainly a slow and continuous process that cannot be overlooked. Thus, my discussion here seeks to provide both a rationale and specific recommendations for fulfilling some of the current needs in agricultural education and training.
