THERE is a very uneven pattern of development in agricultural education work, with considerable variation not only from one major farming region to another, but also from county to county. In some, the work has continued in an unbroken line from well before the 1939 war. In one county known well to the writer, present‐day students in day‐release classes know former students in those same classes who have joined the ranks of the leading farmers in the county. In other cases, while there was a fair amount of advisory work with farmers in pre‐war days, there was little or no direct educational work, which was left to the few farm institutes and agricultural colleges.
