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.
