A comprehensive guide to more than 95 jobs in agriculture and agricultural-related fields.
Agriculture is much more than the production, marketing, and distribution of food. People involved in the agricultural industry also work to produce raw materials for clothing, shelter, energy, and medicine, as well as to provide opportunities for recreation. Farms and ranches are only two types of places where agricultural production occurs. Dairies, fish hatcheries, nurseries, greenhouse facilities, forests, and rangelands are also areas where plants and animals are raised for food and other agricultural products.
