Careers In Agriculture

Those who enjoy the outdoors may consider a career in agriculture. Careers in agriculture range from farmers to land keeper. These individuals spend a great deal of time outdoors, and the work of someone in agriculture is very demanding and tiresome. Occupations of this nature are laborious, thus many are hesitant to pursue a career in this field.

Many who choose a career in agriculture were reared on farms or come from a line of family members who worked in agriculture. From an early age they observed parents and grandparents tending to the farm or crops. This way of life became second nature. In many cases, these individuals began working in agriculture at a young age. Of course, many who enter the agriculture field do so because they want a job that is hands-on.

Farming is a well-known career in agriculture. Most farmers own their land and plant crops to be sold. Farmers are not only responsible for their crops and livestock; they must also handle administrative duties. Planning and organization is a must for a farming enterprise. The salary for a farmer varies. Novice farmers may earn as little as $20,000 a year. This is a huge drawback considering that many farmers are required to work as many as 18 hours a day. The work is tedious, strenuous, and dangerous. On the other hand, expert or older farmers can make up to $80,000 a year. However, it takes years for a farm to generate this type of revenue.

Farming can be a rewarding career for those who have a passion for this sort of work. Still, farming has certain disadvantages. Aside from the possible low pay and grueling work hours, farmers must begin their day very early. In most cases, they begin working before the sun rises. In addition, farmers must live and work in remote areas. This is because they need space to harvest crops and tend to their livestock. Thus, farming is not ideal for individuals who enjoy a suburban or city life.
