There is considerable literature on the use and success of Computer Assisted Instruction (CAI) based farm management teaching. (1, 2, 3, 4, 5). Some of the more popular CAI techniques are farm management simulators and games, budget generators, and linear programming (L.P.). Boehlje, Eidman, and Walker: Kay; and Menz and Longworth reported positive student acceptance in courses centered around CAI. Kendrick reported similar student acceptance, but warned that too heavy a dependence on CAI can become boring and actually erode student interest.
