Agriculture, Food & Natural Resources

The agriculture cluster is very diverse; careers range from the farm to the laboratory to the corporate office. This industry includes farmers who cultivate the land, raise livestock, and grow plants; businesses that purchase, process, distribute, and transport farm products and farm supplies; and the organizations that supply services to the farmer and the consumer.

Other sectors include areas of natural resources and environmental services. People who work in these areas develop, maintain, and manage the natural environment. Among other things, they monitor air quality, test for harmful chemicals in water supplies, enforce state and national laws at parks and preserve lands, and dispose of harmful waste materials.

Workers in this area need to have a deep understanding and appreciation for the natural environment, they can be involved with business, research, or technical aspects of this field.
