Summary

In 1906 the Department of Agriculture [II] (1902 - 1906) was renamed the Department of Agriculture and Intelligence. The State Records of South Australia agency description for the Department of Agriculture and Intelligence suggests the addition of intelligence to the title could reflect the creation of "a special library consisting of publications relating to agricultural matters". In 1908 the Department of Agriculture and Intelligence reverted back to its previous name the Department of Agriculture [III] (1908 - 1975) when according to a 1908 newspaper article the intelligence branch was transferred to the Crown Lands Department.
