In an effort to better link the University System’s intellectual capital to the needs of Georgia’s agribusiness enterprises, the University System of Georgia’s Office of Economic Development (OED) commissioned the Center for Agribusiness and Economic Development (CAED) at the University of Georgia to conduct an Agribusiness Workforce Needs Assessment. As part of the project, a survey was conducted to gather information about the industry’s current and future workforce needs and the types of skills required to support economic growth in Georgia. Specifically, the research was designed to ascertain the college-educated workforce needs of the agribusiness industry and the System’s ability to meet those needs. This report summarizes the findings of the study completed by the CAED regarding the workforce needs of the agribusiness industry and includes the results from the survey administered to agribusiness stakeholders on their workforce needs.
