The awards seek to acknowledge leading farmers and advisors while highlighting their oustanding contribution to agriculture.
According to Paul Luxton, Syngenta Territory Head, Australasia, narrowing down the list of finalists was not an easy feat.
Bryan was drawn from an initial pool of more than 65 high-calibre nominees from across New Zealand and every Australian state. He is a finalist in the Productivity category of the Growth Awards.
Bryan, who is currently employed by Wilcox, is pleased to have been nominated for a Syngenta Growth Award. He’s humbled by the recognition and sees the award as a good opportunity to network with other successful people in the industry.
His approach to driving ‘sold-tonnes-per-hectare’ is to have a deep understanding of each aspect of farm productivity to ensure it is driven efficiently.
Bryan’s productivity, however, is not at the cost of quality. Accepting that market dynamics and requirements change constantly, his years of experience in the potato industry have given him an appreciation of what each different customer needs.
Winners will be selected by an independent and expert panel drawn from across the industry and will be announced at the Growth Awards dinner in Sydney in early December.
