What is Soil Science about?

Soil scientists are involved in the agricultural production, the assessment of environmental quality and product toxicity. In agriculture, they undergo research on the reaction of various types of soil to fertilisers, tillage practices, or crop rotation, and offer guidance to farmers and other landowners.

Soil experts can also provide counseling for construction projects, drilling procedures and forestry companies.

Soil scientists use their findings to help solve a wide range of soil management issues. They might, for example, determine the best crops to grow in a specific soil at a given place and time.

Soil scientists might also work to replenish endangered ecosystems by finding ways to increase soil fertility. Soil scientists often work for manufacturing companies, government agricultural departments and research laboratories. A large number of soil scientists are self-employed consultants.
