My role in the department
I am a Development Officer working on the MyCrop project. The MyCrop products include a suite of diagnostic apps for wheat, barley, canola, lupins and field peas and will soon include oat crops. These apps can assist growers and agricultural professionals diagnose in-paddock constraints to crop production and identify management options. MyCrop products also include a range of other decision support tools including crop variety selectors and an economic calculator.
I have 20 years experience in the agricultural industry of Western Australia based in the northern wheatbelt. During that time I have worked as a technical officer in a pulse research and extension project, as a research officer investigating the use of pasture legumes in northern wheatbelt farming systems, as a company agronomist and most recently as a development officer working on a number of extension focussed projects. This range of experience has given a great breadth of knowledge and networks to help me in the MyCrop project.
