The various types of administrative problems noted by horticulture department chairmen are not different from those cited by heads of other departments. In many instances only the degree to which these problems have been left unsolved accounts for differences in effects on departmental policy and operations. For this reason, it is imperative that once we are satisfied with the descriptive aspects of our administrative responsibilities, we set about to strengthen those areas of deficiency from which problems arise. I would suggest that this is fundamentally a matter of public relations with emphasis placed in 3 areas; i.e. with the horticultural industry, with students and prospective students at both undergraduate and graduate level, and with our colleagues within the University family.
