Notes:
"Agricultural education is much older than our agricultural colleges. We might say that agricultural communication is as old as agriculture itself. Scenes of rural life engraved in stone by people of ancient times, the Biblical record - Old Testament stories, the pastoral poetry of the Psalms, the rural parables of the New Testament - and the writings on agriculture by the Greeks and the Romans reflect the evolution of agricultural communications."
