What’s your AgTech background?
AgTech degrees are a good way to advance your career in agriculture, according to a new research paper published in the American Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry.
This is a summary of the research paper.
AgTech students in the US have a much higher chance of finding jobs in agriculture and the food system than students from other countries.
But the US is still not an agro-economy leader.
The study looked at the job prospects of more than 2,500 agroecologists and their colleagues who had taken a two-year course in agtech, as well as the job market in the UK and other countries where the course is taught.
The average student, the paper found, had a median annual salary of $80,000.
The median annual earnings for full-time agricultural workers are $73,000, and the median income for non-agricultural workers is $51,500.
But for graduates with the agtech degree, the average salary is $98,000 and the average annual income is $80-100,000 per year.
That means that students in Britain and the US earn $2,600 more per year than the average student from the US, and about $12,000 more per student from Mexico, according the paper.
While the US still lags behind its European peers in agricultural productivity and job creation, the authors point out that there are several reasons for the gap.
The first is the size of the agrochemical industry in the United States.
According to the USDA, the US produces more than 40% of the world’s agrochemicals.
The US produces about 80% of agricultural products in the world, and it has the largest farm gate network in the entire world, with more than 5.2 million acres.
The second is that there is a shortage of agricultural professionals.
In the United Kingdom, the British Agricultural Research Council reports that the shortage of agrotechnical jobs has increased the proportion of jobs that require a degree to be an academic by one-third since 2000.
The gap is similar in the U.S., where the University of Wisconsin-Madison has a shortage in some areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields, and in Spain, where more than 1,000 jobs require a STEM degree.
The authors also point out the differences in the wages of the students with the agricultural degrees.
In Britain, the median salary for a full-year student in ag-tech is $89,000 in 2019, the same as for the US.
But in the country where the study was conducted, the study found that the median annual wage for a second-year graduate in the ag-technologies is $82,000 ($78,000 for those with the Agricultural Technology degree).
While the median wages for full time agricultural workers in the USA and the UK are much higher than the US median, the wage gap between them is smaller.
In 2020, the UK median wage for workers with an agtech diploma was $74,500 ($55,000).
In the US it was $77,000 (the same as in 2019).
