ELDERS has announced the addition of two new faces to its leading agronomy team.
University of WA honours graduate Shannon Hunt joined the company in early March and has been based in Carnamah, serving the surrounding Three Springs, Perenjori and Coorow areas.
Shannon hails from a farming background at Marchagee and has specialised in plant pathology, completing her honours project by looking at the soil compaction effect of rhizoctonia disease severity in cereals.
She has just completed a study tour of the Eastern States and is looking forward to bringing her technical knowledge to a commercial environment.
And growers in the Tincurrin area can look forward to utilising the Statewide resources of the Elders agronomy team as part of the company's partnership with the Tincurrin Store.
Local agronomist Clinton Mullan has joined the Elders team and will be working closely with Tanya Hadlow at Narrogin and Tim Boyes in Wagin.
