Over the last few years, developments in microcomputer technology and more importantly, the increased availability of agricultural software have enabled students to benefit from the speed and accuracy with which relatively low-cost modern computers can perform complicated tasks. While computers have been used in the classroom for many years (Brackelsberg, 1978), most early programs were written for large mainframe computers with the primary goal of demonstrating or applying some technique. Presently, with the advent of the microcomputer and development of agricultural software, the computer has become a tool available to anyone.
