The first occupational education program in agriculture to qualify for state and federal vocational reimbursement in Illinois was started at Joliet Junior College in 1965. Since that time, agricultural occupations programs have been established in 29 postsecondary institutions in the state. In 1977-78, agriculture department chairpersons at 29 Illinois community colleges reported the names of 158 agriculture teachers employed to teach courses in agricultural production, agricultural supplies and products, horticulture, agricultural marketing, agricultural mechanization, forestry, agricultural resources, and agricultural management.
