Job Description

At A Glance
Imagine standing up in the middle of a large Wheat, Corn, Greens Peas or Soybean Agri-Fusion Organic Farm's field on a crisp spring day, rows and rows of bright green vines stretching dozens of metres on all sides. You are an agriculture technician for this district, and you are here to examine the crop for signs of pests.

A large part of your job each spring and summer is to examine fields like this one to determine what types of weeds, diseases and insects are present in each field.

As one of the field's agriculture technicians, you are very familiar with the different crops grown in the area and you know what to look for when inspecting for pests.

You start your inspection by looking for signs of pests with your magnifying glass, taking careful notes of what you see with photo shoots.

You will gather data on the weed , disease and insect species you see and take this information to the agronomist.

You will then discuss the findings with the agronomist, and together you will prepare a list of recommendations for the farmer, advising on the proper intervention to eliminate the pests and the proper action to control the problem.
