My role in the department

I am a Development Officer in crop protection agronomy, based in Albany, for the Regional Research Agronomy Project funded by DPIRD, GRDC and Royalties for Regions. The project aims to develop regionally based crop production and crop protection research capacity in each of Western Australia’s five port zones by working closely with a range of industry support networks. My role is to help build capacity within the regions for local research issues as well as work with growers and grower groups to ensure research is being translated into better practice.
