Job Summary

Agricultural consultants are specialist advisers who provide technical, commercial and financial advice and information to farming, agricultural and public sector staff. Also give advice to companies which produce animal feed, seeds, fertilizers, weed killers and other materials used on farms. You are expected to also advise landowners, environmental agencies and conservation bodies. Agricultural consultants provide advice on the use and management of agricultural land.
