The opportunities for majors in Plant Science are as varied as they are limitless and the demand for graduates is steadily increasing. A specialization in Soil Management and Plant Productivity equips you to manage soils for crop production, forest products and erosion control management; conduct research for private and public institutions; or investigate forest soils, wetlands, environmental endangerment, and archeological sites. You can predict the effect of land management options on natural resources; advise land managers of capabilities and limitations of soils (e.g., timber sales, watershed rehabilitation projects, transportation planning, soil productivity, military maneuvers, recreation development); or regulate the use of land and soil resources by private and public interests.
