What is the desirability of in-service training programs in agricultural economics instruction? To what extent do they contribute to a worthwhile learning experience that prepares students to work effectively in agribusiness firms and agencies?

Concern is based partially upon personal experiences with such programs and in part by views expressed by others in the field.
