    Thumbs up Re: What is the scope of Agriculture career in future?

    Hi friend,



    Well friend,Agriculture has been always termed as Backbone of INDIAN economy, so agriculture has got too much scope, there are many nice colleges in that field like :

    >> Punjabi agriculture university

    >>Rajendra Agriculture university, Pusa, muzaffarpur ,etc


    SO, first you must choose which trade, there are many trades here like :

    >> B.Sc in Agriculture

    >> B.Tech in agriculture,etc


    Scope of Agriculture :

    Agriculture plays and important role in foreign trade attracting valuable foreign exchange, necessary for our economic development. The product from agriculture based industries such as jute, cloth, tinned food, etc. contributed to 20% of our export. Around 50 % of total exports are contributed by agril sector. Indian agriculture plays and important role in roads, rails & waterways outside the countries. Indian in roads, rails and waterways used to transport considerable amount of agril produce and agro based industrial products. Agril products like tea, coffee, sugar, oil seeds, tobacco; spices, etc. also constitute the main items of export from India.

    Most of the industries depend on the raw material produced by agriculture, so agriculture is the principal source of raw material to the industries. The industries like cotton textile, jute, paper, sugar depends totally on agriculture for the supply of raw material. The small scale and cottage industries like handloom and power loon, ginning and pressing, oil crushing, rice husking, sericulture fruit processing, etc are also mainly agro based industries.

    Hope it helps!!

    hey buddy

    There are many advantages in the field of agricultural studies.First of all let me discuss about the courses offered and their details :
    B.S.C(AGRICULTURE) :
    Irrespective of other traditional degrees this course has a duration of 4 years.It is provided in universities run by government but it is hard to get an admission in those universities unless you have a good merit background.Coming to the studies you will have all the study regarding agriculture and seeds and cultivation.This is a very good branch.
    B.S.C(COMMERCIAL AGRICULTURE AND BUSINESS MANAGEMENT) :
    This is a course of 4 years as agricultural bsc but this is a combination of agricultural practices in the field of management and business,which is a very good combination its very uprising field in the indian sector it is highly beneficial for the students aspiring to do take up jobs in industries.
    B.TECH(AGRICULTURE) :
    This is also a course of 4 years it deals with the application of technology in the field of agriculture.This is also an uprising field which in future will get a great demand.
    The above mentioned courses will provide you with many opportunities especially in public sector because if you observe keenly the students going for these fields are comparatively very less but the demand for them in market is very high so, i think this is the best option for you. Apart of this you are having many advantages like you can stay away from pollution,no much work stress will be there,working in greenary is very rare choice.
    The following are the future opportunities for this field :
    • AGRICULTURAL OFFICERS,
    • SEED INSPECTING OFFICERS,
    • SCIENTIST,
    • SOIL CHEMIST,
    • PROFESSORS,
    • VEGETABLE BOTANIST.e.t.c..
    HOPE THIS HELPED YOU.....
