A recent survey conducted for Land O’Lakes suggests that there is very low interest in college grads to pursue a career in agriculture. However, AgCareers.com sees a very different trend. AgCareers has a 33 percent increase in the number of visits to their website in the last year.
Chuck Zimmerman spoke with Eric Spell, AgCareers.com president, who says that enrollment at colleges of agriculture across the U.S. is at an all-time high. In addition, 35 percent of AgCareers applicants had a non-ag degree and 38 percent were currently or most recently employed outside of agriculture.
