I studied Animal Science at Nottingham University before joining RSK ADAS Ltd for five years as an Agricultural Consultant working on a wide range of projects, mainly in the arable sector ranging from on farm advice to organising technical farmer meetings. I found that working directly with farmers was what I enjoyed the most, and an area where changes to the farm system could be trialled and real differences made. I am BASIS (arable), FACTS and BASIS Soils and Water qualified. I now work as an Agricultural Advisor for Anglian Water
I want to talk to farmers about how to maximise the value of their already existing methods and features they have already on the farm and how small tweaks can be a win-win on the farm and for the environment. I am particularly interested in soil health and seeing the farm from a holistic standpoint and how we as an industry can continue to improve farm resilience and gross margin, whilst protecting and improving the environment.
