Worldwide Agricultural Labor – High End

On the other end, a number of notable countries dedicate just 1% of their workforce to agriculture. These include Germany, Great Britain, Canada, Belgium, and Israel, while the United States, Australia, and the Netherlands have just 2% of workers engaged in farming. 

Other highly developed economies show similar numbers, like France (3%), Japan (3%), Spain (4%), Italy (4%), and South Korea (5%.) Nations with little physical territory are also low on the list, like Qatar (1%), Bahrain (1%), Malta (1%), Luxembourg (1%), and Kuwait (2%). About 70 countries have 10% or less of their workforce in the agriculture industry.
