Plant Science Careers

Rhonda Said:

What level of education is needed to be a plant breeder?

We Answered:

Botany and biology are the two easy answers. Degrees would include plant husbandry and agronomy.

Andy Said:

Plant science vs Animal science [careers]?

We Answered:

Both are interesting careers!

Plant Science (Botany) Pays about 30-40K a year. Jobs are hard to get.

Animal Science Pays about 25-45K a year. Jobs are abundant especially in big city areas.

Derrick Said:

What are some Agricultural Mechanics Careers?

We Answered:

There are Ag Engineers and Ag Tech Managers. K-State offers both degrees.

Norma Said:

What are some careers in the agricultural business?

We Answered:

To be completely honest, organic ag is NOT where it's at. Right now it is a niche market and there are NO proven health benefits of growing stuff organically. As much as we all would like to live in a perfect world where everything could be produced organically, current market prices and the depressed economy cannot and will not make organic farming sustainable. Reduced yields and high input costs will always be the limiting factor. HOWEVER, if you desired to be in organics, working for a university doing research can be an option (you would need a M.S. or Ph.D. to become a full time researcher however).
I would not suggest trying to start your own organic farm, as land, equipment, and labor costs for conventional agriculture has soared in recent years making it very hard for starting farmers. Growing organically includes more labor and tons of paperwork and certification. If you were to get land that did not host an organic farm it may take 3-4 years to reach organic certification. If you get land that was used as an organic farm, you have to have proof beyond a reasonable doubt that it was organic as one application of any synthetic fertilizer or pesticide will null the land of it's organic status.
If that has talked you out of organic ag, your options are endless when it comes to jobs, but you have to be willing to relocate, even if it is a temporary relocation.

Hector Said:

What can I do with a plant science degree, emphasis in plant health?

We Answered:

You could work in a Nursery or for a Florist but I think you could do better with a major in Botany or Biology.

All I know is most international students studying law in the US get an LL.M. Your question is a little vague.... but studying the law of a completely different country might not help you too much (besides adding to your analytical reasoning skills).

LG G6 Price said:

It is quite surprising that being a flagship device of such a well-known brand like LG is coming with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor instead of the Snapdragon 835 chipset. That’s really shocking. But let’s wait for the LG G6 to Release. You can check out the LG G6 Price if you want.
