TN Visa as an Agriculturist/Agronomist


What is an Agriculturist/Agronomist for TN visa purposes?

In general, an Agriculturist plays a very important role in maintaining the food supply of the country by ensuring food safety and agricultural productivity. Agriculturists study farm animals and crops and they develop methods to improve both their quality and quantity including crop yield, pest and weed control and conservation of soil and water. They also try to find ways to convert raw agricultural commodities into healthy food products for the consumers. The US Department of Labor (DOL) provides a detailed breakdown of the Agriculturist/Agronomist profession through O*NET Online.
