Are you considering a career in agriculture? If so, you could fill one of more than 50,000 jobs available every year in the food, agricultural and natural resources system.
An agriculture career does not always involve production farming. In fact, only 10 percent of the more than 20 million people who work in the agriculture field are traditional farmers. The rest are employed in more than 200 other agriculture-related careers.
Agriculture is science-based, high-tech and offers a variety of career possibilities, including animal and plant researchers, food scientists, nutritionists, commodity brokers, market analysts, forest managers, agricultural journalists, bankers, sales professionals, food processors, wildlife specialists and much more.
