    in future agriculture sector is emerging as a best career option. if you have qualification in agriculture then you can get govt jobs easily.if you belong to rajasthan then you have to appear in JET exam. if you once qualify this exam then you are eligible to get admission into all 11 govt colleges.once you completed your graduation rajasthan govt will offer you jobs in the field of survey of fertile fields,seed quality controller,dairy products every years total production, cows, buffalo's health related issues will be assigned to you . in other words you have to spend your most of the time in villeges which comes under you.you can also join seeds producing companies as a technician.also in fertilizer manufacturing industries like sriram fertilizers,chambal fertilizers..you can run your own small scale business of sell and purchage of agri products .overall your future is safe

    There are many job opportunities in the agricultural field.The only thing which is required in order to be successful in this field is that the candidate must be very much interested in
    agricultural sciences and should be determined to make a career in this direction.
    But most of the job opportunities in agricultural field are available in research and development fields( and mainly students from science back ground only have the basic
    knowledge to make a career in this field).So, there are many research and development institutes set up in the country for the purpose of encouraging growth in the
    agricultural sector.Actually our country needs to increase its food production at a rapid pace to feed its ever increasing population.
