This research was a continuation of a study begun in 1977 to describe students enrolled in higher education in agriculture in the South. In that study, data were collected from students in agriculture majors at 26 institutions, all but one being land-grant institutions. In 1982 and 1987, the 1977 study was replicated with undergraduate agriculture majors at Mississippi State University to determine changes that may have occurred and trends that may have developed over the five and ten year periods. Although, several notable changes had occurred, no major trends were identified.
