Tackle on-farm challenges with added value from hybrid barley
Meet the breeder - Joe Smith
“After three seasons as a harvest student, I joined Syngenta over 14 years ago in the trialling team at Market Stainton, Lincolnshire. After a few years I moved into the breeding team and I am now the Hybrid barley breeder for UK, Ireland, Scandinavia, Benelux, North France, and North Germany.
My passion has always been the plants, whether that be in the polytunnel or the field. The best part of my job is the time spent in the field with the crop, from sowing to harvest and back again.”
