Bryan was one of only seven award winners recognised at the annual gala dinner on Tuesday night, which saw the Pukekohe resident win the Grower Productivity Award. The Growth Awards recognise individual achievements
in agricultural productivity, sustainability, and commitment to community and people.
The winners were selected from a group of 24 high-calibre finalists from across Australia and New Zealand. They were judged by an expert, Matt
Hood, a third-generation farmer in Queensland’s Lockyer Valley, and a winner of the Grower Productivity category in the 2014 Growth Awards, also sat on the judging panel.
According to Paul Luxton, Syngenta Territory Head, Australasia, Bryan demonstrates an unparalleled understanding of market demand. “Bryan’s operation is very much focused on productivity and quality; he produces
what the market wants,” Paul said.
“Bryan has taken on board a lot of professional career experience in New Zealand and overseas, putting it to use in an on-farm role to minimise production losses and differentiate products to meet customer expectations. He has good long-term integrated pest management strategies and biological control which complement his responsible and efficient
crop protection and input management programs.”
