Agriculture is one of the largest sectors of Indiana's economy, with a $20 billion annual impact. From farmers to researchers to technicians and sale people, agriculture spans many and varied fields. And, as agriculture becomes more productive and high-tech, the need for trained college graduates in these careers is increasing.
