Agrii is the largest division within Origin Enterprises PLC with over 800 colleagues.

As the UK’s leading agronomy business, Agrii offers independent, innovative advice to arable, fruit and vegetable growers. Our advisory services include varietal selection, nutrition, crop protection and application techniques necessary to ensure high-performing marketable crops, which adhere to the highest levels of safety, quality, sustainability and environmental and regulatory requirements.

At the heart of Agrii’s business model is the relationship between agronomy expertise and farming, positioning Agri-Intelligence at the core of the customer proposition. We invest heavily in integrated research and innovation and are proud of the Agrii- Intelligence brand, backed up by the largest and most integrated trials network in the UK with 42,000 trial plots and 28 demonstration farms.

Due to an internal promotion, we are looking for an exceptional individual to lead Agrii’s Technical, Research and Development Teams. The primary focus is on developing innovative, sustainable agronomic strategies that deliver viability and profitability for Agrii’s farmer and grower customers. You will also work closely with the Head of Innovation & Sustainability of Origin Enterprises (Agrii’s parent group) to ensure alignment with group-wide priorities and values. The role requires a particular focus on sustainability in line with Agrii’s Green Horizons initiative, integrated pest management (IPM) and the optimisation of Digital agronomy tools. The role is Home based and will require extensive travel.

We welcome applicants who have an in-depth knowledge and understanding of agronomy, the biology and chemistry of all aspects of crop protection (especially in combinable crops), and excellent communication skills both written and verbal. Experience and a track record in successful design and implementation of an R&D Strategy is important, alongside a sound understanding of technical and marketing requirements. As part of the Agrii Board you will demonstrate excellent leadership qualities with the ability to influence, engage and inspire both internal and external groups, and be passionate about agriculture and innovation.
