Education required to work in agriculture can vary depending on the specific career path within the industry.Certificate or associate's degree: Some technical and vocational schools offer certificate or associate's degree programs in agriculture-related fields, such as agricultural science, agricultural technology, or crop management. These programs can take anywhere from one to two years to complete.Graduate degree: Some positions in agriculture, such as research scientists or agricultural economists, may require a graduate degree, such as a master's or Ph.D. These programs can take an additional two to six years to complete, depending on the degree and the student's area of focus.

Robert’s Answer

When talking about jobs that are available in agriculture there are jobs in just about any field you are interested in. For example, I work for a large multi-national seed company and we have career positions just like any other large corporation would have, like IT, supply chain, operations. There are also more specific positions like R&D, plant breeeding, QA. The education you would need might be specific to whatever area interests you the most. Most people tend to equate farming and ranching as really the "agriculture" jobs but there are so many jobs that make up the actual agriculture sector today.

David’s Answer

The most important to detail exactly what you want to be in agriculture. If you are looking for a small sustainable farm, then life experience benefits you greatly. There is no better teacher than trying and failing to find out what works. If you are looking to get into a large scale farming operation then most A&G colleges offer degree paths in agriculture and agriculture management.
1. First step: Define your Goal
2. Try and fail, and try again.
3. Keep learning. Agriculture science is forever changing.
