Over the next decade there will not be enough agriculture graduates to meet the expected growth in jobs. Agriculturalists are in great demand because of the big issues confronting the world.

Food Production and Security

The world’s growing population needs agriculturalists and horticulturalists to insure a healthy food supply. 

Energy Production and Management

Farms are the site of both energy use and biofuel production.

The Environment

Horticulturalists and agriculturalists view the land as an important natural resource that needs to be conserved for the future.
