Arable Agronomist for UK and Ireland, Yara UK
After achieving a degree in biology at Sheffield Hallam University in 2010, Natalie worked as a research and development agronomist in the trials contractor industry, conducting trials specifically on herbicides and fungicides for registration of new products and reregistration of existing plant protection products. She spent four years at the company and worked on efficacy, residue and operator exposure trials which took her work as far as Thailand.
In 2014 Natalie joined Yara UK as the technical agronomist, conducting R&D by organising and overseeing Yara’s in-field trials then analysing the results.
In 2016 she became the Country Arable Agronomist for Yara UK and Ireland, where she started to direct the agronomic agenda, R&D and interact closely with the marketing team. In 2017 Natalie started a part-time PhD at the University of Nottingham combining Yara research with a current collaborative project.
