Knowledge Exchange Manager – Cereals & Oilseeds
Rose joined the organisation’s Arable Knowledge Exchange team in spring 2019 and works across County Durham, Northumberland and the Yorkshire region. Rose runs the Monitor Farm programme in this area, along with the Arable Business Groups and wider events and activities.
She’s already familiar with the area, having previously worked for plant breeder KWS UK in regional sales, covering the North and Scotland. In that role, Rose provided regional growing advice to merchants, agronomists and farmers on key varieties. The role enabled her to develop an interest in different crop species and varieties, and more progressively how that fits into a IPM strategy.
A farmer’s daughter from the east coast of Yorkshire, Rose comes from mixed farming background, with both sheep and cows being part of the arable rotation. She has completed her BASIS Foundation Award in Agronomy, as well as achieving BASIS Certificate in Crop Protection IPM (Seed Sellers).
