The purpose of this study was to identify the core agribusiness standards to be used to guide instruction in Utah secondary agriscience and technology programs. The Utah agriscience and technology teachers and agribusiness representatives of the study moderately or somewhat agreed that 11 of the same agribusiness standards should be taught in the secondary agriscience and technology programs of Utah. The teachers and agribusiness representatives indicated demonstrating written and verbal communication skills and use of computer technologies in agricultural management and quality control as the initial two standards to be taught. Both groups agreed the least important standards to be taught were monitoring the affects of non-government organizations andgovernment on the operations of the agribusinesses and the use of approved estate planning practices and principles. The authors concluded the teachers and agribusiness representatives agreed upon a common set of core standards that should be used to guide instruction in Utah.
