Pursuing a Career in Weed Science: Ten Ways to Make a Difference

Weeds and invasive plants impact the world around us in significant ways - reducing crop yields, choking waterways, triggering allergies and disrupting natural habitats. But scientists are tilting the balance with new research and best practices.

Here are ten of the many ways today's weed scientists hope to make a difference:

1. Maximizing crop yields to feed a growing population with less cropland.
2. Eliminating aquatic weeds that clog our waterways and impact water quality.
3. Controlling invasive weeds that destroy biodiversity in our rangelands and wild areas.
4. Developing weed management techniques for organic farming.
5. Reducing the impact of weeds on human health and allergies.
6. Researching new and improved weed management techniques in response to climate change.
7. Minimizing the development of resistance of weeds to herbicides.
8. Preventing soil erosion by minimizing the role of tillage in weed control.
9. Managing weeds that can fuel devastating fires.
10. Training future weed scientists.

To prepare for a career in weed science, you typically need a bachelor's degree in agronomy, biochemistry, biology, chemistry, ecology, horticulture, plant physiology, soil science or a related field. For a research position in academia or industry, you most likely will need an advanced degree.
