Agricultural Education and Research 1


    ONE of the functions of the Board of Agriculture is the administration of a Treasury grant for the purposes of agricultural education, and though the total distributed is not large it hasb been a potent factor in stimulating the development of the higher forms of agricultural education during the last fifteen years. It is certain that many of the county councils which now help to maintain colleges giving instruction of a university standard would have never started at all or would have rested content with something in the nature of a farm school had it not been for the advice and practical encouragement provided by the Board of Agriculture.
