Occasional Paper: February – 2012: Professional Agriculture – A Case of Supply and Demand
Published 23 Feb 2012

Evidence is present that there is a sizeable job market i agriculture and more than 4000 jobs per year are consistently being advertised seeking agricultural professionals. Conversely the number of graduates being supplied by Australian universities continues to decline significantly and is less than 20% of the number needed to satisfy the job market.
