Soil and plant scientist

By: Brandon and Anthony


To become a soil scientist, you need to begin by earning a Bachelor of Science degree in a field such as botany, biology, agriculture, geology, forestry, environmental science or agronomy.

If you want to become a soil scientist who works as a consultant in the environmental, commercial, horticulture and agriculture sectors, you may need a master’s degree in one of the aforementioned fields.

If you want to become a soil scientist who works in a research or a university teaching position, a PhD in one of these fields is almost certainly needed.


If you become a soil scientist you will be making about 28 an hour and 52,920 yearly.


You will need reading comprehension, and you will need to be and active learner. You will also need to get along with others.


If you are looking for a good paying job that is not in the office, then this is the job for you. You get to get down in the dirt and get dirty.
