Career opportunities are promising, according to recent study

Agrologists Called to Play a More Crucial Role in the Canadian Economy

Ottawa (February 12, 2016) — As climate change is becoming increasingly challenging in Canada, Canadian agrologists are expected to play a gradually more important role in the area of food production and environmental protection, and career opportunities for new graduates are varied and exciting.

According to a recent study commissioned by Agrologists Agronomes Canada, high demand and strong starting salaries offered to new graduates makes agrology a very interesting career option.

This past winter I was pleased to be able to take part in work travel to Kenya to review Farmers Helping Farmers projects conducted in an area north east of Mount Kenya. This area is very dry in the best of times, and I was visiting during the dry season when forages and other field crops had stopped growing due to water deficits. To promote the well being of local farmers, in the fall of 2014, 35 water tanks were installed on farms operated by Kenyan women. Seven of these tanks were purchased with a donation of $2,000 from the PEI Institute of Agrologists.
