Significant Information: Farmers, Ranchers, and Agricultural Managers




  • Modern farming requires knowledge of new developments in agriculture, and work experience acquired through growing up on a farm or through a small number of internships now available.
  • Overall employment is projected to decline because of increasing productivity and consolidation of farms.
  • Aquaculture and horticulture should provide better employment opportunities.
  • Developments in value-added marketing and organic farming are making small-scale farming economically viable again.
