When a young student is asked on what career he or she wishes to pursue, the last and very rare answer we hear is “farming or agriculture”. It is not new and is quite common to hear and see the young generation shying away from said fields. But this is a wrong misconception, as farming and agriculture are high in success options and can yield very good profits if studied and acted upon.
