Meet the breeder - James Wroth

“I began working in Barley in 1999 and have remained here ever since then. I am currently focused on Hybrid Barley breeding for UK, Ireland, Scandinavia, Benelux, North France & North Germany, all of which make climatic variability, maintaining competitive yield performance & lowering seed production costs with better genetics very real challenges. The varied tasks, the people and being outside make all of it worth it! ”
