Sector Need: 

Agriculture is one of the most economically critical sectors in the world and is integrated into every aspect of modern society. Agriculture is a complex sector that includes much more than farming or ranching. The sector also includes the support, processing, and distribution of goods. From a workforce perspective, the agriculture sector represents the largest number of jobs in the nation and in California. In addition California produces billions of dollars in agriculture products each year, providing a fundamental economic base to the state’s economy. California’s climate and diverse land resources provides the ideal location for a variety of crops and livestock. The state of California provides approximately half of the fruits, vegetables, and nuts in the country. California is also the largest state for milk production in the nation.
