Agriculture in the United States has been characterized by agronomic, biological-chemical, and mechanization technologies (Just, Schmitz, and Zilberman, 1979). In order to educate workers about agricultural mechanization technologies, Agricultural Engineering and Agricultural Mechanization education programs were developed. These programs emphasized the application of physical technology to agricultural production and processing (Esmay,1986). This included aspects of marketing, management, service, and sales of agricultural technology (Buriak, 1989). Today, Agricultural Mechanization may be the only program that combines engineering sciences and technology, agriculture, and business.
