Working Duties Expected

The agricultural surveyor does similar work to that of the rural practice surveyor except that he or she develops a far more in-depth knowledge of the specific issues that are relevant to agriculture. Large surveying firms that run rural practices may employ some staff who become pure agricultural specialists. Agricultural surveyors do carry out agricultural valuations, but they also advise clients on other aspects of land use and development, and of legislative issues that affect farming.

What does the role encounter?

An agricultural surveyor’s work might include:

• valuing farm livestock whether that stock is to be auctioned or sold, eg as breeding stock or for meat and other products;
• valuing the potential of land to ascertain what agricultural uses it might have, eg arable, livestock, woodland development, etc;
• advising potential purchasers or current owners of land's potential uses, eg its suitablility for organic crop production, etc;
• advising on drawbacks of particular agricultural land and its suitability for certain activities, eg soil type, drainage, stock safety, etc;
• working with agricultural land owners on making planning applications for farm and other agricultural developments, eg extending farm buildings, changing use of premises, incorporating leisure facilities into an existing farm complex, etc;
• helping agricultural land owners to set rents for tenants, eg if a farmer decides to lease some of his field to other people;
• advising farmers of the impact certain developments could have on their land, eg roads close to fields, aircraft noise effects on stock, etc.
