.       Agriculture forms the basis of the country's food security, so its human resources play a big role in fulfilling this task. The state has goals of increasing the level and quality of life of the Russian countryside. To do this, it is necessary to provide rural areas with a wider range of cultural and leisure facilities and consumer services. One of the challenges here is the accessibility of education for rural youth. The interaction of agricultural universities with employers is an important factor for future specialists who, after graduating from universities, will plan to return to work in their village. Therefore, the personnel shortage in agriculture will decrease only when future specialists become motivated to work in rural areas. In addition to wages, the improvement of rural areas is an equally important incentive to choose work in rural areas.

       The personnel shortage manifests itself not only among specialists with higher education, but also among blue-collar professions. Along with the shortage of agronomists, livestock specialists and veterinarians in agriculture, there is an acute shortage of tractor drivers, mechanics and drivers. Specialists in the field of biotechnology, breeding and genetics are becoming the most in demand. In connection with the modernization of production, agriculture is gradually moving to a new stage of its development, so in the very near future, specialties that will require IT specialists will become in demand.
