Employment Opportunities for College Graduates in Food, Agriculture, Renewable Natural Resources
Did you know that there are more job opportunities in food, agricultural, renewable natural resources and the environment than there are college graduates to fill those jobs? That's the finding of a U.S. Department of Agriculture report, forecasting that there will be an estimated 57,900 high-skilled job openings annually for college graduates through 2020. However, the United States only produces about 35,400 new college graduates in related fields every year, according to the USDA's National Institute of Food and Agriculture and Purdue University project there are only an average of 35,400 of new college graduates. (For more on the report, see https://www.purdue.edu/usda/employment/.) There are great opportunities for highly-skilled jobs in agriculture, so consider studying at Cal Poly Pomona's College of Agriculture. Visit http://www.cpp.edu/agri for more information.

Near East and North African countries can gain significantly from expanding their forest cover.
Mr. Chadi Mohanna, Director of Rural Development and Natural Resources, Ministry of Agriculture, Lebanon, explains that Near East and North African countries are severely affected by desertification and climate change. These dynamics are set to increase in the future, but one of the best ways of halting this and combating the negative effects is through large-scale reafforestation to increase forest cover and halt the encroachment of sand dunes. Lebanon has embarked on a programme to plant 40 million programme trees, with the aim of increasing forest cover from 13 to 20 percent by 2030. This is working well as a private-public joint venture and attracting a lot of international attention, including from the development community. Mr Mohanna encourages other countries in Africa and the Middle East to emulate such a successful approach.

Agricultural Economics Definition | Definition & Explanation of Agriculture Economics (Audio Book)
Agricultural Economics Definition | Definition & Explanation of Agriculture Economics (Audio Book) Agricultural economics or agronomics is an applied field of economics, concerned with the application of economic theory in optimizing the production and distribution of food and fibre—a discipline known as agronomics. Agronomics was a branch of economics that specifically dealt with land usage. It focused on maximizing the crop yield while maintaining a good soil ecosystem. Throughout the 20th century the discipline expanded and the current scope of the discipline is much broader. Agricultural economics today includes a variety of applied areas, having considerable overlap with conventional economics. Agricultural economists have made substantial contributions to research in economics, econometrics, development economics, and environmental economics. Agricultural economics influences food policy, agricultural policy, and environmental policy. Economics has been defined as the study of resource allocation under scarcity. Agronomics, or the application of economic methods to optimizing the decisions made by agricultural producers, grew to prominence around the turn of the 20th century. The field of agricultural economics can be traced out to works on land economics. Henry Charles Taylor was the greatest contributor with the establishment of the Department of Agricultural Economics at Wisconsin in 1909. Another contributor, 1979 Nobel Economics Prize winner Theodore Schultz, was among the first to examine development economics as a problem related directly to agriculture. Schultz was also instrumental in establishing econometrics as a tool for use in analyzing agricultural economics empirically; he noted in his landmark 1956 article that agricultural supply analysis is rooted in "shifting sand", implying that it was and is simply not being done correctly. One scholar summarizes the development of agricultural economics as follows: "Agricultural economics arose in the late 19th century, combined the theory of the firm with marketing and organization theory, and developed throughout the 20th century largely as an empirical branch of general economics. The discipline was closely linked to empirical applications of mathematical statistics and made early and significant contributions to econometric methods. In the 1960s and afterwards, as agricultural sectors in the OECD countries contracted, agricultural economists were drawn to the development problems of poor countries, to the trade and macroeconomic policy implications of agriculture in rich countries, and to a variety of production, consumption, and environmental and resource problems." Agricultural economists have made many well-known contributions to the economics field with such models as the cobweb model, hedonic regression pricing models, new technology and diffusion models (Zvi Griliches), productivity and efficiency theory and measurement, and the random coefficients regression. The farm sector is frequently cited as a prime example of the perfect competition economic paradigm. In Asia, agricultural economics was offered first by the University of the Philippines Los Baños Department of Agricultural Economics in 1919. Today, the field of agricultural economics has transformed into a more integrative discipline which covers farm management and production economics, rural finance and institutions, agricultural marketing and prices, agricultural policy and development, food and nutrition economics, and environmental and natural resource economics. Since the 1970s, agricultural economics has primarily focused on seven main topics, according to a scholar in the field: agricultural environment and resources; risk and uncertainty; food and consumer economics; prices and incomes; market structures; trade and development; and technical change and human capital. In the field of environmental economics, agricultural economists have contributed in three main areas: designing incentives to control environmental externalities (such as water pollution due to agricultural production), estimating the value of non-market benefits from natural resources and environmental amenities (such as an appealing rural landscape), and the complex interrelationship between economic activities and environmental consequences. With regard to natural resources, agricultural economists have developed quantitative tools for improving land management, preventing erosion, managing pests, protecting biodiversity, and preventing livestock diseases. ..................................................................................

North State Farming and the Natural Resources Conservation Service–Audrey Denney on the Issues
Agriculture is a critically important industry to our region and our state. Agriculture in the north state has every potential to grow, diversify, become more profitable, and simultaneously restore the environment. I grew up farming, participating in 4-H and FFA, and I earned my degrees in agriculture. I know firsthand that our producers take risks that most business folks wouldn’t imagine. Farmers and ranchers work long hours amidst one of the most volatile economic eras for commodities in modern history. They are society’s chief stewards of the land, and they produce the bounty of amazing local nutrient-dense foods that we in the northstate are so blessed to enjoy. They are our heroes and I want them supported as such. The farmers and ranchers who manage our soils are our best hope in combating climate change. I believe that climate change is the single largest threat facing humanity and life as we know it. Whether it has been designing educational tools to help policymakers understand and monitor greenhouse gas emissions, teaching our local university students about reducing food waste, or working with smallholder farmers in Central America and West Africa, I have spent my career as an ag educator focusing on making agriculture better for all those involved, from the producer to the consumer. My priorities for agriculture include: Create opportunities to further differentiate our amazing north state growers with premiums in the marketplace Support growers with local processing and necessary infrastructure to increase production of value-added products, reduce food waste, and keep more dollars and jobs local to our district Reduce the regulatory burden on farmers and ranchers by supporting innovative projects that increase conservation and environmental outcomes while streamlining regulatory processes Invest in expanded technical assistance to farmers to implement conservation practices through increases of funding to the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and base funding for resource conservation districts Partner with federal, state, and local agencies to invest in migrant farmworker housing to provide critical support to the agricultural labor force by increasing overall worker health, dignity, and retention Promote grazing as an important management tool for our public lands and support continued access to public lands Promote soil-based carbon credits and carbon reduction markets to mitigate climate change while creating new revenue streams for producers Cultivate the region as a true agritourism destination Develop opportunities for young farmers and ranchers in their ability to access land and capital. Additionally, provide training and implementation-support for sound succession planning Invest in a soil-based approach to carbon drawdown that will simultaneously improve environmental health, reduce chemical inputs, maintain or improve farm productivity, and increase our resilience to droughts and other disasters caused by climate change.

Sawyer Nursery MAEAP Verification Ceremony - Michigan Dept. of Agriculture, April 16. 2010
The honoring of Sawyer Nursery for MAEAP verification April 16, 2010. HUDSONVILLE, Mich. - The Michigan Department of Agriculture (MDA) and Michigan State University (MSU) today applauded Sawyer Nursery for demonstrating environmental responsibility by joining the elite group of Michigan's greenhouses to become verified by the Michigan Agriculture Environmental Assurance Program (MAEAP). "MAEAP is designed to be one of the most effective and feasible ways for producers to position their farms to safeguard both the environment and it's long term economic viability," said MDA's Chief Deputy Director Gordon Wenk. "By sharing technological information as well as monitoring and recording changes in the way producers manage problems, MAEAP helps farmers find solutions for potential pollution issues." Almost 800 Michigan farms are MAEAP verified. Joining this elite program is Sawyer Nursery, which completed the comprehensive Greenhouse*A*Syst risk assessment that pinpoints best practices in water, fertilizer, and pesticide use. Technical assistance was provided by Rob Stein, Ottawa Conservation District, in partnership with MSU Extension Educator Tom Dudek. Over 50 years ago, Sawyer Nursery began as a small producer of perennials and has grown into a leader in perennial horticulture, supplying finished container plants and other materials to most major box retailers throughout the Midwest, including Home Depot, K-Mart, Lowe's, Meijer, and Wal-Mart, as well as independent garden centers. The nursery continually strives to employ more methods of sustainability as the company grows. "Many of Sawyer's practices were done right originally. We fine-tuned them to complete MAEAP verification requirements. Our awareness increased about those environmental facets we don't think about all the time," said Sawyer Nursery General Manager Dan Vander Schuur. "Recent eco-friendly initiatives at Sawyer's include several water retention ponds used to recycle and reuse water, as well as using and re-using recycled, biodegradable plastic containers and tags. Pest management using predatory insects and organic chemicals for plant disease management has also been adopted." To become MAEAP verified, farmers must complete three comprehensive steps, which include educational seminars, conducting a thorough on-farm risk assessment, and developing and implementing an action plan addressing potential environmental risks. MDA conducts an on- farm inspection to verify program requirements related to applicable state and federal environmental regulations, Michigan Right to Farm guidelines, and adherence to an action plan. When completed, the producer receives a certificate of environmental assurance. To remain a MAEAP verified farm, inspections must be conducted every three years and action steps must be followed. MAEAP is a multi-year program allowing producers to meet personal objectives while best managing both time and resources. The program encompasses three systems designed to help producers evaluate the environmental risks of their operation. Each system - Livestock, Farmstead, and Cropping - examines a different aspect of a farm, as each has a different environmental impact. Verified greenhouses have met all requirements in both the Farmstead and Cropping Systems. The program is a collaborative effort of Michigan producers, MDA, Michigan Department of Natural Resources & Environment, Michigan Farm Bureau, commodity organizations, MSU, conservation groups, and other state and federal agencies. More than 150 local coordinators and technical service providers are available to assist farmers as they move through the MAEAP process toward verification. To date, approximately 7,500 farmers have attended educational programs.
