Agriculture and Related Businesses. Revised Summary Report: Technical Employment in Northeast Florida.
Baker, William E.; And Others
The document is one of five summary reports, all part of a Pre-Technical Curriculum Planning Project for secondary students who aspire to technical employment or post secondary technical education. This report represents the results of an assessment of the northeast Florida area's technical occupations in agriculture and related businesses. A three phase approach was utilized: (1) the identification of four broad career clusters in agribusiness: landscaping, animal/food production, forestry and natural resources, and agricultural mechanics; (2) development of a survey instrument; and (3) a review of data collected. The following occupations are some of those analyzed according to tasks and corresponding skills/knowledges: florist shop technology, floral design, greenhouse technology, landscape technology, dairy and poultry plant managing, poultry service, logging, forestry research technology, game and fish management, aquatic weed control, wild life officer, ranger, agricultural mechanics, service and sales, and truck driving. Employment statistics and projections, conclusions and recommendations complete the document. (MW)
