fuvictory,

Apologies for the delay in replying; I've been traveling. Your strength is the unusualness of your industry and of your post-MBA focus. It's distinctive and gives your profile a strong, focused theme. Your negatives are your age and GMAT score. I think you have a decent chance of gaining admission to UC Davis and a good chance at Texas A&M. You may also want to consider business schools in the Midwest, such as University of Iowa, which must also have strong agricultural business programs.

Clearly, your verbal skills are what's holding you back, so all schools will expect you to show them that your English is strong enough to enable you to function in B-school. If you want to earn a fellowship you should seriously consider improving your GMAT verbal score or applying to B-schools with lower average GMAT scores, since fellowships usually go to students who have strong or unusual profiles relative to the school's typical profile. Hope this helps.
