Global crop protection company ADAMA has appointed Jodie Littleford as the company’s new regional agronomy manager for North East England.

Jodie joins the company from ProCam, where she spent the last two years working as a trainee agronomist and trials officer in Yorkshire. Prior to this she spent four years working for Eurofins Agroscience Services as an R&D agronomist.

Jodie graduated from Cardiff University in 2016 with a BSc degree in biology and a BASIS certificate in crop protection, having previously won the Barrie Orme Shield Award for most outstanding BASIS candidate.

Commenting on her appointment, Will Nicholls, ADAMA’s regional agronomy manager lead said: “We are delighted to welcome Jodie to ADAMA and look forward to working with her to improve our scope and reach throughout the North East of England.

Jodie joins us from ProCam where she has gained valuable technical experience as a trials officer and agronomist; two roles which have allowed her to develop a detailed understanding of a range of cropping and input strategies as well as a thorough appreciation of the commercial implications of a range of on-farm crop protection strategies.

“As such, she is ideally suited to providing technical support to agronomists and crop protection distributors in the North East and will play an integral part in the development of regional and national strategies for ADAMA’s expanding ranges of herbicides, fungicides, molluscicides and plant growth regulators.”
