NEW AGRONOMY AND MARKETING SUPPORT AT ADAMA UK

ADAMA Agricultural Solutions UK Ltd. has extended its UK crop protection team with the appointment of a supporting regional agronomy manager and new marketing assistant.

Matt Welton joins the ADAMA team in the new role of Supporting Regional Agronomy Manager. Matt is a University of Bath biology graduate (2020) with a dissertation specialising in the fusarium wilt pathogen of wheat. As part of his degree Matt worked within the Agricultural Solutions division of BASF on a 12-month work placement where he assisted a team of agronomists in a full season of herbicide and fungicide trials.

Following his graduation, Matt joined the Management Development Services (MDS) Ltd. food and fresh produce graduate scheme: he initially spent six months with Syngenta in Basel, Switzerland, as a global marketing trainee in the company’s biologicals department before returning to the UK as a buying assistant for Iceland Foods. He has subsequently joined ADAMA for an initial 12-month period as a supporting regional agronomy manager, a role in which he will assist ADAMA’s team of regional agronomy managers to maximise the uptake of the company’s crop protection products by cultivating relationships and lines of communication with key distributors and independent agronomists.

Eloise Seaman joins ADAMA as the UK team’s marketing assistant. From a farming family in North Norfolk, Eloise graduated from Harper Adams University in May 2021 with a degree in Food Manufacture with Marketing. As part of her degree Eloise completed a year in industry working for Keeling’s International as the company’s technical undergraduate.

Following her graduation, Eloise joined the Management Development Service (MDS) Ltd. graduate scheme: her first secondment was with Riverford Organic where she developed a quality assurance role. She has subsequently joined ADAMA for an initial 12-month period as the company’s marketing assistant. 

“We’re delighted to be partnering with MDS and welcome Matt and Eloise to our UK team,” explains ADAMA UK’s Go To Market Director, Ali Bosher. “We look forward to helping them further their careers over the next 12-months and I’m sure they will both become valued resources as we continue to enhance our crop protection offering to our trade and distribution partners.”
