Abstract
  • There seems to be a lack of information and even much misinformation as to how agricultural experiment stations should be planned, organized, and operated. The problem becomes more serious in some of the developing countries that have organized their stations based on technical knowledge and management practices from more advanced countries whose agricultural, political, and social conditions may be very different. The purpose of this study was to fill what is believed to be a serious gap in experiment station management, that is, to provide management principles and guidelines. This study was accomplished by evaluation of ideas and opinions obtained from personal interviews with farm superintendents in the United States and with directors and research staff of experiment stations in Colombia and Ecuador. This study includes a review of the origin and development of the agricultural experiment stations and gives primary emphasis to the principles of planning, organizing and staffing an experiment station. The functions performed in an experiment station and their interrelationship to the efficient use of the resources available were especially considered. The selection and qualifications of a director of an experiment station was stressed. The factors that need be considered in the location of the station and the location and construction of the various facilities were also discussed. The importance of effective management of the land and efficient operation of the services and facilities were also discussed. This study concludes stressing the need for formal training programs for the personnel responsible for the operation and management of experiment stations, and recommends that evaluation of the management, policy matters, and of the services and facilities be conducted periodically in order to detect and correct when problems and/or conflicts arise.
