• Agriculture, Food & Natural Resources


    "Agriculture, food & natural resources focuses on the essential elements of life—water, air, food, and land. The people who work in the cluster include farmers and ranchers tending Texas crops and livestock; utility operators providing oil, electricity, and natural gas; and conservationists protecting wilderness and wildlife. They put food on our tables and turn raw materials into products we all use. For students and workers in Agriculture, Food & Natural Resources, the Earth is one giant classroom full of natural wonders to explore. If you love to be outdoors, enjoy caring for plants and animals, and want to help conserve our natural resources, then Agriculture, Food & Natural Resources could be the right career cluster for you."
