Ag Workforce Demands Young Job Candidates with STEM Education

Tuesday, November 18, 2014

*Sent to all contacts, administrators, guidance counselors.


Agriculture Workforce Demands Young Job Candidates with STEM Education (from FarmFutures)

STEM ResultsA report from the STEM Food & Ag Council has found that there's a growing gap between the number of graduates in agriculture-related science, technology, engineering and math fields and the number of available employment opportunities. Released at the World Food Price Borlaug Dialogue last month, the report analyzes employment and enrollment in six fields: Agricultural business and management; Agriculture mechanization and engineering; Animal sciences; Plant and soil science; Food science and technology; and other life sciences.
Key findings indicated that from January to August 2014:
*The food and agriculture industries hired nearly 34,000 people per month. Additionally, a quarter of current food and agriculture professionals are age 55 or older, meaning workforce attrition will create additional opportunities for young professionals to advance in their careers.

*The report also found 4.9% aggregate growth in STEM employment opportunities in advanced agriculture fields is projected over the next five years, adding 33,100 new positions.
