Certification and Advancement
Keeping updated with current agricultural technology and learning through apprenticeship programs are a great way to get ahead in the industry. For occupations that require operating equipment on the road or driving a truck as part their job, a driver's license will be required.
Many opportunities will open due to retiring professionals. It's also important to keep in mind that the changing weather patterns and industrialization of agricultural production will change the way agricultural practices are performed.
