Bread is a great profession
Bread - it's a very ancient profession, stretching its roots in the very depths of the history of Russia. In ancient times this word was used to refer to people whose efforts made it possible to grow grain. They plowed the land, then sowed seeds in it and at the end of the season harvested. It was thanks to the grain growers that bakers received flour, from which they subsequently made bread for people.
But the years went on, the horses with the wooden plow were replaced by tractors, and the women with the sickles were replaced by harvesters. The work of the grain grower became mechanized, but his role in the society did not change from this, because, as before, bread remains one of the primary products on the table. And while this does not change, the profession of a grower will not lose its greatness.
Nevertheless, we can not fail to mention the changes that have occurred in this area since the advent of the 21st century. After all, if earlier the work of a grain grower was carried out by one family or a small group of people, now it is a well-established production.
The hard way from plowing to harvesting
With the advent of spring life on the fields is boiling. The agronomist comes first, examines the land and decides where it is better to plant the wheat, and where the rye will be taken more quickly. Next, a tractor driver undertakes to work: he plows the field, allowing the earth to inhale fresh air and moisture. Then, after changing the plow to a seed drill, he planted wheat grains.
And from the moment when the first sprout will germinate, and until the harvest is harvested, an agronomist watches the wheat. After all, it is worth a little overlook, and the grain may be attacked, or the bug will appear. Therefore, these experts are always guarding the harvest.
It must be remembered that a baker is a person who does not work alone. And the next in the team is the combine operator. By the way, they are now more often called grain growers, because a lot depends on the work of the combine operators. For example, how much wheat will be taken from the field, whether to harvest before the rainy season and so on.
In addition, we should not forget about the machine operators, who monitor the serviceability of tractors, combines and aggregates. And there are masters of irrigation, often saving crops during long droughts.
How to become a grain grower?
Those days when knowledge about the field and grain passed from father to son, long gone. Now you can get education in a technical school or institute, though, there is no such specialty as a baker. But the closest thing to it is a tractor driver or a combine operator.
Bread is a very difficult profession, and one should not forget about it. And it's not even that you have to remember all the details of the design of the tractor and master the ride on the combine. No, the complexity of the profession is that a few get to understand the land, but without this, a good grain grower can not become.
Also, not everyone will survive such a tight work schedule as the combine harvester during the harvest season. When from early morning till late at night you have to give all the best, otherwise it will not work out on time. Therefore, the future baker should have good health and a lot of patience.
The relevance of the labor market
Good combine operators and tractor drivers, who have experience and love for agriculture, are now valued for their weight in gold. Therefore, finding a job will not be difficult, especially in those regions where the agricultural sector is well developed. As for wages, everything is relative here. In most cases, it depends on the size of the enterprise, the amount of work done and how good the crop was.
Bread is an almost forgotten name both in the labor market and in society as a whole. Agrarian organizations need tractor operators, combine operators, agronomists or machine operators, but you will not see ads for hiring grain growers, except occasionally, and then at an old enterprise. It's a little sad, but for those who want to master a profession related to cultivating the land or harvesting, there is always an alternative. It does not matter how the specialty is called in the workbook. The main thing is that it brings joy.
