We are currently seeking an experienced Agronomist to join our Client, an established Fresh Produce business supplying the major supermarkets. This role offers a great opportunity to join a key player in the industry and become an integral part of the Agronomy team.  

Reporting to the Agronomy Manager, the successful individual will ensure agronomic best practice is applied across the supply base. Regular crop walking and identification of crop health issues in terms of pest and disease, crop nutrition status and feeds to manage plant health should be advised where necessary. Advise growers on irrigation requirements, crop production planning, new varieties available and keep growers informed of developments around their crops that may affect their successful growing of fruit and yields.  

With the encouragement of growers to gain BASIS & FACTS certifications, it would be most advantageous for this individual to have knowledge of both, with experience of the Fresh Produce industry and ideally Fruit. A full driving licence is essential due to travel to growers / farms.
