Introduction

Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources Career Cluster Video

Producing, processing, marketing, distributing, financing and developing agricultural commodities and resources, including food, fiber, wood products, natural resources, horticulture and other plant and animal products and resources.

Employment Outlook

Careers in this cluster fall into the farming, fishing, and forestry and the life, physical, and social science occupational groups used by the Bureau of Labor Statistics for occupational projections.

Farming, Fishing, and Forestry

Employment in farming, fishing, and forestry occupations is projected to show little or no change from 2019 to 2029. Projected increases in some agricultural worker occupations and for fishing and hunting workers will be offset by declines in logging occupations.

Life, Physical, and Social Science

Employment of life, physical, and social science occupations is projected to grow 5 percent from 2019 to 2029, faster than the average for all occupations, which will result in about 68,200 new jobs. Increasing demand for expertise in the sciences, particularly in occupations involved in biomedical research, psychology, energy management, and environmental protection, is projected to result in employment growth.
