Notes:
INTERPAKS, In: H. W. Kerr, Jr. and L. Knutson, eds., Research for small farms, Washington, DC: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Agricultural Research Service, 1982. (Miscellaneous publication no. 1422). p. 23-26., Discusses a concern that terminology currently used in agricultural research and extension is obsolete and clearly inadequate. Indicates that this condition reflects, in part, the lack of conceptualization and the weakness of the concepts upon which we now depend, as well as the traditional nature of the agricultural research and extension establishment. Notes that the problem is especially serious in international work and is becoming serious even within the tradition.
