Project 39 was established in August 1951 as one of three agricultural programs within the Organization of American States (OAS). A 1976 description of Project 39 says:[1]

"It is operated under the auspices of the Inter-American Institute of Agricultural Sciences by a director who is responsible to the director of the institute. This project, entitled "Technical Education for the Improvement of Agriculture and Rural Life," is the largest of the technical co-operation projects of OAS. As originally planned, this project was designed, in the first instance, to supplement the training facilities of member countries by international courses in subjects related to agricultural development and, growing out of this, to help enable certain regular training facilities of member countries to serve internationally."
