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.
