November 29, 2017


In order to fuel the talent pipeline, younger generations must be presented with a positive image of agriculture and a comprehensive view into the diversity of the industry in a format appropriate to their interests. Understanding the need for increased participation in the agricultural industry in order to feed and fuel a growing and hungry world, has created an e-book dedicated to inspiring young people to pursue careers in agriculture.


While all work is important and valuable regarding the continued pursuit of agricultural careers among younger generations, a more modern and interactive approach is necessary to reach and appeal to Generation Z and beyond. Creating a dynamic and interactive medium for which to view this important information is crucial to pique interest and persuade youth into the pursuit of a career in agriculture. An e-book is also a preferred medium to spread this message, because it can be widely distributed for a low cost to agricultural educators and advocates at the secondary and post-secondary levels.
