Even if the number of people employed vary widely from country to country the agricultural sector remains one of the largest global employers.
Agriculture jobs are usually classified in categories as agribusiness (farmers, operators, consultants, marketing positions, networking experts, sales representatives, etc.), agriscience (agronomist, agricultural scientist, crop scientist) or animals/plants breeding (cattle breed association representative, dairy industry breeding consultant).
According to the required education level there are lower positions as machinery operator or tractor-drivers, but also jobs involving a college or a Ph. D. degree (agricultural engineers, water management and irrigations specialists, veterinarians, biologists, chemistry and biochemistry specialists, college professors).
