AGRICULTURE
Today's agriculture is biotechnology, international marketing, genetics, engineering, food science, computers, horticulture, communications, veterinary science and much more. Average annual demand for college graduates with expertise in agriculture will exceed the expected job supply by 13 percent. Many of these jobs require a college degree in agriculture. High school agriculture and FFA (www.gilbertffa.com) provide essential preparation for students desiring to study in this field.
