Opportunities in farming industry, says study

Rome, April 24 - Young Italians are finding work on the farm, according to an analysis by Coldiretti. Agriculture was one industry that saw an increase in employment in 2012 - a jump of 3.6%, the farm organization said in a report released Wednesday. The data, drawn from Italy's national statistics agency, shows that many of the new jobs were going to workers under 40 years, a group that has been especially hard hit by unemployment. Italy's economy has been mired in a recession that has seen a steadily climbing jobless rate and decreased opportunities for youth. Growth opportunities in the sector is also demonstrated by a 29% jump in enrollment in agricultural vocational schools and 13% in technical colleges related to agriculture, agribusiness and agro-industry, according to Coldiretti.
