Career in Agriculture
Career in Agriculture – Mrs. Swati Salunkhe speaks on age-old topic Agriculture which has existed right from the inception of mankind and it is going to last long too. One can’t imagine world without food. It’s noticed that most of the urban kids are not inclined towards agriculture. They wonder whether agriculture or farming can be considered as a profession Yes of course, it can be considered as a profession. As you know that we are getting the food, we are getting it due to the hard toil of somebody who is working in the fields. Next question is do you require any qualification for that? Let’s go back to the basics. We all agree that the most important ingredient of our livelihood is food, which comes from the fields, and so the farmer so important. There can be a profession which can be a means of livelihood for millions of people. So how do I get about it? What does it include? What is agriculture all about? We don’t need to define agriculture, we all know it. Add to it, it’s not only about food grains, but it also includes vegetables, fruits, flowers, and it can extend to dairy, poultry, sometimes and fisheries also. So whatever you want to eat, you can get into the field of agriculture.
Primarily, let’s be at present restricted to cultivation or growing up of plants. How to get into this field? Though it’s the oldest form of human activity, it has a formal way of getting into it. One can get into it after your Class 12th in Science with Physics, Chemistry, and Biology and getting into Agriculture it could be B.E Agriculture Engineering, B.SC Agriculture in horticulture, Floriculture, Sericulture. Passing of 12th class is not enough; you also need to clear the relevant exam. To get this, you need to study all the agricultural courses in the university itself, it might be the Central or State universities. It takes a lot to become a farmer, it’s not a six months course, and you need to invest three to four years for this formal training course, and it doesn’t end over here you have Masters Programme also in this, not only in Agriculture, Agriculture Sciences but also Agri-Business Management also.
Remember agriculture is not the poor old farmer that you have always visualized; it is something that you work for others while making your own livelihood. So can anyone become an agriculturist?
