Significant Information: Agricultural and Food Scientists




  • Almost 4 in 10 salaried agricultural and food scientists work for Federal, State, or local governments.
  • A bachelorís degree in agricultural science is sufficient for some jobs in applied research; a masterís or doctoral degree is required for basic research.
  • Slower-than-average job growth is projected because of limited growth in the Federal Government and modest growth in State and local governments, the largest employers of these scientists.
