Farm Crop Production Technicians

Advancement Prospects

Technicians in the field of farm crop production have many opportunities for advancement. Early advancement will be easier for those who combine a formal technical education with work experience. Those who have had several jobs in the industry will probably advance to managerial levels more rapidly than those who have not. As more postsecondary schools are established in local communities, it becomes easier for employed persons to continue their education through evening classes while they work. Although a bachelor's degree in agriculture may be required to advance to some positions, technicians may be able to substitute a great deal of experience for the degree. Some technicians are able to become managers, supervisors, sales representatives, and agribusiness or farm owners.
