ADAMA Agricultural Solutions UK Ltd. has appointed David Roberts to the newly created position of marketing and technical manager for the company’s molluscicide, sugar beet, oilseed rape and plant growth regulator portfolios.
David has worked for ADAMA since 2016 when he was appointed as the company’s technical specialist for herbicides in the UK. He subsequently joined ADAMA’s European team as Product Strategy Manager for cereal herbicides and PGRs (plant growth regulators).
Mr Roberts spent the early part of his career working as an agronomist and regional technical manager before joining SumiAgro in a technical support and training capacity. He subsequently worked as a senior R&D agronomist for Dow AgroSciences and has a total of 35 years’ experience in the agricultural sector. He is BASIS, FACTS and PPA qualified and is a member of the BASIS Professional Register.
“We are delighted to welcome David back to ADAMA’s UK marketing and technical team,” explains Go To Market Director, Alison Bosher. “David was an instrumental part of the UK team when he originally joined the company six years ago and has been similarly invaluable in his recent European role.
“Mr Roberts’ appointment comes at a crucial stage in the development and expansion of our molluscicide, PGR and sugar beet and oilseed rape specific crop protection portfolios in the UK and I know his technical expertise and proven marketing experience will be a great asset to our own regulatory, agronomy and commercial teams and to their counterparts within each of ADAMA’s key customer accounts.”
