Exploring This Job

The National FFA Organization can introduce you to the concerns of farmers and researchers. A 4-H club can also give you valuable experience in agriculture. Contact the local branch of these organizations, your county's soil conservation department, or other government agencies to learn about regional projects. If you live in an agricultural community, you may be able to find opportunities for part-time or summer work on a farm or ranch. Visit Web sites that provide more information on soil science and education and careers in the field. One useful site is Careers in Soil Science (https://www.soils.org/careers).
