It appears that while the immediate objectives of the agriculturist differ from those of the academic biologist, the long-range needs for standards of growth and aging, for physiologically equivalent units of time and mass, and for knowledge of the influence and mechanisms of various internal and external factors on growth and related processes are the same for both. This suggests that these two groups of biologists should work together more closely.
