The Jamaica Five-Year Development Plan 1990-1995 identifies inadequacy of agricultural information services as one of the factors responsible for the poor performance of the country's agricultural economic sector. This article identifies the shortage of information specialists in this field as a key reason for inadequate service. The author proposes to introduce a one-semester course on Agricultural Information Resources to remedy this situation. The value of the course for other English-speaking Caribbean countries is discussed.
