Agriculture is our nations largest employer, and its related fields comprise close to 25 percent of all jobs in this country. While raising crops and livestock remains the solid foundation for all agriculturally related careers, only 8 percent are in the production area of agriculture . The remaining 92% of agriculture jobs are in agribusiness, science, marketing, communications, and other exciting areas.Chapter SelectionsVisit the Agriculture Career Center at http://www.ffa.orgC H A P T E R O N E</p></li></ul>
