Pomology Jobs

Pomology Overview


A pomologist works in the field of pomology, which is the study of fruit and nut trees. A pomologist works to cultivate new fruits breeds and to maximize the output of breeds already in existence. Pomologists help to make fruit more resistant to disease and adverse weather in order to ensure the survival of fruits and nuts across changing climate conditions. To become a pomologist, a high level of education is required, as well as experience working in biology, agriculture or soil conservation.

Pomology Education Requirements


A minimum of a bachelor’s degree in agriculture, soil microbiology, plant sciences, or another related field is required to become a pomologist. Most pomologists start out working in horticulture, and later choose to focus on pomology as their specific expertise. Skill with computers is necessary, as are qualitative and quantitative analytical skills. Much of a pomologist’s time is spent studying, so skill in research and observation is essential.

Pomology Job Market


The number of pomologist jobs is expected to grow by 8% between 2012 and 2022, which is about average for most career fields. This will result in an estimated 670 job openings per year. Those seeking a career in pomology can increase their chances by taking internships at other scientific study groups, particularly those focusing on fruits and nuts. Volunteer work in orchards, as well as publication in peer-reviewed scientific articles, can increase the chances of being hired.

Pomology Salary


A pomologist can make anywhere from $17 an hour to upwards of $46 an hour. The median wage is $28 an hour. This translates to an average yearly salary of $58,000, but salaries can reach as high as $96,000. The experience of the pomologist and their prestige within scientific circles can have a great influence on their wages.
