Longer term, the trainee will learn to observe different socio-economic factors and their effect on production trends as well as how weather, politics and logistics influence what farmers choose to grow and how much they get out of their farms.
The trainee will spend more time getting his boots dirty than wearing a tie, but giving presentations to traders and management will also be part of his scope.
The ideal candidate would be a French and English-speaking agronomist……. but more important qualities are good numeracy, common sense, a robust constitution, willingness to spend a lot of time on the road, self-discipline, self-sufficiency, curiosity and good organizational skills.
