Adama UK’s managing director, Ben Miles, shared his delight at welcoming Ms Whaley to the team. He said: “We look forward to working with her to develop and implement our ongoing product development strategy. Catherine will also play a pivotal role as we work towards securing the registration of a pipeline of new products in the UK, all of which are being designed and developed to ensure tomorrow’s farmers have the tools they need to produce healthy and profitable crops.”
