Are you a student considering a career in agriculture?

There are many opportunities to pursue a career in agriculture including both on and off farm. Some examples include soil science, agronomy, research, farm worker or manager. Agriculture is more than you think with robotics, drones, research, genetics, plant and animal science all being critical components in a growing industry.  Find out more by reading case studies of local people working in agriculture and kick start your career by downloading a copy of the Careers in Agriculture Resource Guide (10MB pdf).
