The problem of the development of regional agrarian production systems in the conditions of an innovative economy gives rise to the need to provide agriculture with a workforce capable of introducing innovations. At the same time, great attention should be paid to their qualifications and, consequently, to their professional education, which is the most important factor in the formation and development of human potential. Taking this into account, it is relevant to study the relationship between the level of professional training of agribusiness workers and the volume of agricultural products. The purpose of the article is to quantitatively assess the impact of vocational education of workers of agricultural organizations in the region in the areas of their activities on the volume of agricultural products based on modeling. The study used: systemic, sectoral, decomposition and complex methodological approaches; monographic method; statistical methods.A methodological approach to the system analysis and modeling of the influence of working personnel of agricultural organizations in municipal districts of the region and the types of their vocational education on the final result of agribusiness is proposed. For the Orenburg region, a tendency has been established to reduce the number of workers in agribusiness organizations in rural areas. Based on the construction of multivariate regression models for the main areas of activity, estimates of the closeness of the relationship between the number of workers, taking into account their professional education and the volume of production of agricultural enterprises, have been determined, they allow identifying problem situations and justifying the adoption of measures to eliminate them. Models for processing agricultural products and servicing agriculture have high coefficients of determination and will be useful in scenario forecasting for making managerial decisions on personnel policy. In the future, a study on a comprehensive assessment of the qualitative characteristics of working personnel is relevant, which will improve the efficiency of personnel management.

Keywords: agricultural organizations, workers, vocational education, modeling, region.
