Meet the breeder - Hazel Bull

“Having joined Syngenta in January 2018, I am the most recent addition to the Cereal breeders. My background combines barley genetics and field based research, prior to joining Syngenta I spent 8 years at The James Hutton Institute, Dundee. I am excited to join the Syngenta team which has a strong history of malting barley excellence as well as facing the challenge of breeding new varieties which fulfill the agronomic demands of farmers in tandem with the key quality requirements of the Maltster, Brewer and Distiller.”
