This is a new role within the company that reflects the ever increasing need for technical support for its extensive range of varieties for the arable market.
Jessica recently graduated from Newcastle University where she studied Agribusiness Management, however it was her summer job working with the Limagrain barley team that piqued her interest in plant breeding.
“I worked with the barley breeding team last summer and had the absolute time of my life! I was the first student to start and the last to leave. Starting so early meant I got to disease score with our cereal pathologist, giving me a great insight into the agronomy side of things.”
“It was during these field outings that I met Ron Granger, the technical manager, he offered kind words and encouraged me to pursue a career in agriculture.”
“This is a really exciting time for plant breeding as new and exciting high yielding and disease resistant varieties are being developed, and I am really delighted to be involved in bringing these varieties to market.”
