Employment Opportunities for College Graduates

in Food, Agriculture, Renewable Natural Resources and the Environment

United States, 2020-2025      Click for entire study.    Click for 2 page report summary.

Job opportunities in Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources (AFNR) remain high validating the need for an increased number of students to pursue an AFNR degree.

Figure 1bPreface

A 2020 Pandemic Note: The underlying study and preparation of this report began in September 2019 when global socio-economic conditions were much different from today. While the average annual projections of employment opportunities and qualified graduates in this report are for a five-year span and developed in concert with U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics forecasts for 2018-2028, fewer than the average annual number of employment opportunities will be realized in 2020. The project team anticipates expanding employment opportunities in 2021 and during the remainder of the period if the pandemic can be controlled. The team feels strongly that the need for graduates and available employment opportunities in the food, agriculture, renewable natural resources and the environment sector will remain steady and strong.
