Significant Information: Agricultural Workers




  • Duties and working conditions vary widely, from working in greenhouses, to producing crops and raising livestock outdoors, to inspecting agricultural products in plants.
  • Most workers learn through short-term on-the-job training; agricultural inspectors need work experience or a college degree in a related field.
  • Most farmworkers receive low pay and often must perform strenuous work outdoors in all kinds of weather, but many prefer to work and live in a rural area.
  • Employment is projected to grow more slowly than average.
