I work as Agricultural Technician throughout the state of Washington. As an Ag Tech, I operate greenhouses and improve the health of plants as well as maintain research, field and chemical application equipment. I have a great knowledge of procedures used in farming and land preparation. I set up experiments and coordinate field production and testing with the goal of determining the effects the environment and soil health has on crop yield, disease and growth patterns. Often, the data from these experiments must then be organized, analyzed and prepared for reporting for a variety of research facilities in the Northwest region.
