    I know there are several different words that are used for farmer in Spanish and that the word used depends the type of farming being done. However, I'm wondering if there is a generic term that could be used for the following quotation from Will Rogers, which I need to translate:

    "The farmer has to be an optimist or he wouldn’t still be a farmer. ~ Will Rogers "

    Do I go with "granjero" or "agricultor" ?

    I did several searches to see if I could find the quote already translated, but up to this point I've had no luck.

    Thanks in advance.

    Qué buena que está la frase, no la conocía, y cuánta razón tenía al decirlo. Creo que le va como anillo al dedo al agricultor, que siempre depende de variables que no están bajo su control, en mayor medida que el granjero. Que si llueve mucho, que si llueve poco, que si llueve cuando no tiene que llover, que si cae granizo... Dicho esto, creo que las dos pueden funcionar.
    Saludos
