Farm Progress America - December 29, 2016

Audio-Farm Progress America - December 29, 2016

Max Armstrong shares information from a new study look at women in agribusiness.

Max Armstrong quotes a new study that about 44% doctorate degrees earned in food and ag are with women, but only 23% of tenure tracked positions are held by women. The University of Florida study shows that women are underrepresented in a number of areas in agriculture. He notes progress is being made, but there's work to be done.

Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
