Are You Advocating for Agricultural Careers?

The need for students interested in agriculture is greater than ever. ( iStock )

While attending my very first FFA meeting as a freshman in high school, 10-plus years ago, I remember glancing toward a classmate I knew was an in-town resident who probably knew very little about agriculture. I remember wondering why she was there. Was she chasing a farm boy? To my surprise, that classmate became very active in the FFA chapter and competed with me on the soil judging team as well as speaking contests. We studied plant science and agribusiness alongside, but her future plans led her away from the industry.

Reflecting on my initial impression of that high school classmate from years before, and thinking there was no way she could possibly be interested in agriculture, I think about how often I mislabeled those around me throughout high school and at the small liberal arts college I attended as “non-ag.”

The fact of the matter is, we need agricultural careers. You’ve heard it said that we need to feed millions of people, but we also need to satisfy changing tastes and produce more with less while minimizing negative effects to the environment. The agriculture careers needed to solve these challenging tasks at hand will need to be filled by people from all walks of life and all backgrounds.

We need secondary students in urban settings who have never been to a farm but are curious about science. We need high school students who think agriculture is nothing more than farming but want to make a difference in the world. We need college students pursuing degrees and majors outside of agriculture, like accounting and engineering, to realize the potential they could achieve in the agricultural realm.

Realizing the growing need for agricultural careers, has created the Careers in Agriculture E-Book to share with those we can influence now. This E-Book was designed to reach students and young professionals from all backgrounds easily and effectively. All pages are equipped with vibrant photos, videos, and discussions from agriculturalists. Accessible easily by just a link, the e-book can be shared via email or social media (find a guide for sharing the E-Book via social media here). We invite you to consider even making the link accessible on your website. It’s as easy as clicking “send” on an email.

We have created two versions of the e-book: One includes the Career Profiles and one does not. It is recommended that the Career Profiles version be shared with middle and high school students as well as beginning college students while the version without the Career Profiles is shared with individuals already set on their career, path such as advanced college students and young professionals.

Access the E-Book WITH Career Profiles here.

Access the E-Book WITHOUT Career Profiles here.

It’s just as important to advocate for agricultural careers as it is to promote agriculture itself. Consider sharing this digital e-book with your talent pool and your colleagues. Help lead the charge to fill those open slots in ag careers in the future.

I have something to share with you!!! There is a great joy in my heart which I want to share with everyone. My name is Gunn Jenssen Faith . I had a misunderstanding with my lover several months ago; which led us to break up and he never wanted to hear my voice again. But as time went on, a good friend of mine recommended DR.PEPOKO who could help me with Love Spell to get my man back. At first, I thought the idea of a love spell was strange,but was willing to give it a try because i really love my boyfriend. For the first time I was scared to contact the DR.PEPOKO because I was not sure if what they did was against my religion. But my friend assured me that they only use Spell which is safe and has no side effects. I felt a little better and decided to contact DR.PEPOKO on his mail ( contacted him through his email and explained everything to him. He said that I shouldn't worry, that my lover will come back to me on his knees begging for forgiveness. I bought an item that he told me to buy for the preparation of the spell and assured me that my lover will come to me within 48 hours in remorse. My greatest joy now is that he actually came back to me and fell on his knees begging for forgiveness. We got back together and our relationship has been better this second time around. I have to give DR.PEPOKO all the credit for helping us get back to a better place than where we began. The new found love that my boyfriend has for me is incredible and i can't wait to see what the future holds for us. Do you have any problem with your loved one? Well worry no more because DR.PEPOKO can provide you with a spell to get him or her back. With the help of a spell just as he helped me. Contact DR.PEPOKO via email: or visit her website:

Here is my details also if you wish to contact me personal:::

I am Monica David from Ontario Canada, i want to testify about the good service of Dr. Ugo Wonders living in USA for helping me bring back my fiancee who left me because of a prostitute. it was a terrible and depressing time when my fiancee whom we were supposed to be married in two months cancelled our wedding because of a prostitute who cast a spell on him and stole him away. i was searching for help online when i saw a review about Dr. Ugo of General Spell Temple, i then contacted him for help. I followed all his instruction accordingly as he assured and guaranteed me that my Fiancee will be back in 48 hours, to my greatest surprise in exactly two days after the spell was cast, my Fiance called me and started to apologize for leaving me because of another lady. i waited for two months in which we are now married before i could testify and right now, we are one happy family and its going to remain like this for ever.. all thanks to Dr. Ugo Wonders of General Spell Temple. you can contact Dr. Ugo for any relationship problem through his direct email : or call him directly on +1 386-336-9876
