Employment of inspectors is projected to grow about as fast as the average for all occupations through 2018. The Department of Labor reports that federal and state governments are not planning to hire a significant number of new inspectors within the next few years. There may be greater need for agricultural inspectors, however, if pending legislation is passed that requires the Food and Drug Administration to increase scrutiny of the food industry. In addition, the threat of agroterrorism and bioterrorism and recent national outbreaks of food poisoning have reinforced the need for qualified horticultural inspectors.
