Ag Student Grads Making More Money, Study
By Amanda Brodhagen, Farms.com
New data released by Iowa State University shows that college graduates in agriculture programs are making more money in their first year of work compared to their counterparts.
Iowa State compiled data from 16 participating institutions which summarized entry-level salaries of recent graduates. The data indicates that agriculture programs such as agriculture economics, agriculture education and crop science graduates are making, on average, five per cent more than non-ag graduates from a year ago.
