Agricultural scientists advise farmers, rural industries and governments on varying aspects of farming. They develop techniques to increase productivity and improve the quality of produce. This can include weed and pest control, soil improvement and management and the eradication of livestock and crop disease. Their job may include collecting and analysing data and samples of produce, feed, soil and other factors that affect production. Agricultural scientists also develop techniques to ensure the long-term sustainability of farming while protecting commercial interests.
