The Association of Faculties of Agriculture in Canada has been publishing data on student enrollment and the number of graduates at the Bachelors, M.Sc. and Ph.D. levels on an annual basis since 1978. This paper provides comparative annual data for all degree levels in the faculties of agriculture in Canada from 1978 to 1984. Over the six-year period enrollment at the Bachelors level declined almost 8%. During the period 1978 to 1981 there was a sharper decline of 11 %. Enrollment in Diploma programs rose modestly to 1981 and then declined through to 1984 resulting in an overall decline of 5% during the period. Enrollment of graduate students increased 31% during the six year period with most of the increase occuring during the period 1982 to 1984.
