I grew up on the family farm in Cambridgeshire and have always had a passion for agriculture. Whilst my peers were enjoying their summer school, I was on a tractor until the early hours of the morning. When I left the home farm, I worked as a harvest student at KWS UK. This mainly involved driving farm machinery, but I also gained some key insight into the breeding process leading to different combinable crop varieties, particularly winter wheat. I studied Biological Sciences at the University of Brighton, returning to KWS UK during the summer to scratch my agricultural itch. The more time I spent within the industry, the more I fell in love with the intricacies of farming. I then moved to NIAB to work in the Oilseed Rape and Field Bean DUS programs, eventually taking over the Field Bean DUS trial. I have always had a keen interest in the agronomic aspects of commercial agriculture and therefore sought an opportunity to train as an independent agronomist with Indigro. I pride myself on my attention to detail and critical analysis of research data to ensure my knowledge and advice is current and substantiated.
