Job Description

When it comes to seeds and breeds and varieties our client is a proactive, front runner in this area. We have been asked to find a passionate Agronomist who possesses a degree or equivalent qualifications in this subject.

The ideal person will be competent in visiting growers and talking through varieties and seasons and favourable growth circumstances with the most experienced of agronomists and farmers who have been doing this job for many years.

You will have a passion for discovering new varieties and investigating the possibilities of growing sufficient quantities in order to supply your product nationwide.

Our client needs you to be competent in selecting only the strongest products that will be able to deliver to the needs of the business. We need you to use your experience and knowledge base to be able to identify the winners and the losers and then go on to persuade the development teams to run with your product.
