    Attracting the Shining Stars to Agriculture.
    Falvey, J (Australian Institute of Agricultural Science and Technology, 1997)
    While one will expect partnerships of convenience from time to time. the long-term prospect for agricultural education is based on the recognition of its role as an applied area of social and natural sciences supporting agriculture. Industry and research funders. among others. are also sending this message (Falvey and Ma!!hews. 1997). As an applied field, it behoves us to link strongly with all stakeholders in policy formulation. planning. implementation and funding.

    Food and Environmental Science
    Falvey, J (Australian Science Teachers Association, 1997)
    The negative impact of food production on the environment is of increasing public concern and more sensitive production systems such as organic farming are often proposed. Such views miss the point that this global issue must be considered in terms of essential tradeoffs which require more and better science in the fields of food and environment, such as in agricultural science courses. Global population will continue to grow and demographic shifts and poverty will require massive increases in food production which can only be provided from intensive agriculture. Declining food prices and extreme poverty in some countries will continue to orient food producers to short term gains. All of these factors suggest that intensive agriculture restricted to suitable lands will be required for the foreseeable future. Balancing environmental care with food production is a challenge which continues to demand the best minds for research and education. We cannot isolate ourselves from the world in which we live.

    The Future Shape of Agricultural Research
    Falvey, J (Australian Institute of Agricultural Science and Technology, 1998)
    Agricultural research has changed in orientation since its inception; we must continue to expect change. Publicly funded, institutionalised research has been a significant development to, and through, this era and is evolving to a more mature system.
