Lee, Jasper S.
Intended for teachers, counselors, and administrators, this booklet is designed to provide a brief description of the agribusiness and natural resources occupations cluster. Agribusiness is a blending of agriculture and business and is composed of two groups of occupations known as farm and nonfarm. Agribusiness and natural resources occupations are concerned with meeting the basic needs of man. Occupations in agribusiness and natural resources involve a wide range of subjects and skill requirements in such areas as biological science, economics, communications, business procedures, and transportation. Included in this booklet is a brief description of the opportunities and requirements of occupations belonging to these subgroups of the agribusiness and natural resources cluster: (1) agricultural production, (2) agricultural supplies and services, (3) agricultural mechanics, (4) agricultural products, (5) ornamental horticulture, (6) forestry, and (7) natural resources. In addition to the brief descriptions, a review of the changes occurring in agriculture, the importance of agribusiness and natural resources occupations, and employment trends are discussed. (SB)
