The Agricultural Recruitment System (ARS) helps agricultural employers recruit qualified U.S. workers on a temporary or seasonal basis, and provides workers seeking temporary agricultural employment with opportunities for such employment (see 20 CFR 653 Subpart F). 

Through the ARS, State Workforce Agencies (SWAs) can recruit and refer qualified U.S. workers from within a state and from other states when they anticipate that there are less temporary agricultural workers available than needed in the local area. ARS helps agricultural employers meet temporary and seasonal labor needs by matching U.S. job seekers with agricultural jobs.
