In recent years agricultural education has been the subject of discussion and inquiry in many countries and much reorganisation of research, teaching and advisory services has been undertaken, in an effort to enhance the contribution which these services can make towards increased efficiency in agriculture and greater prosperity for the farmer. The object of this paper is to review these changes and for purposes of comparison to outline the origin, development and present position of the system in Ireland. The subject has been divided into three parts. Firstly, an attempt is made to trace the historical development of Irish research and teaching institutes and agricultural advisory services. The second part gives a brief description of systems in certain other countries which might be of interest, while finally, the present position and future outlook in Ireland is briefly discussed.
