Based at the Bunn headquarters in Norwich, Stuart will be learning about customers’ specific crop nutrient needs and responding with new products and services.

“I look forward to working with our technical sales managers, advisors and customers to assess our whole portfolio, looking to adapt, change and adjust, to better meet customer requirements,” Stuart explains. “There are great opportunities with exciting new technology and techniques that enable us to develop innovative products with even greater performance. We will be building on the success of our new Koch Advanced Nitrogen® fertilisers where our own stabilisation technology ensures that nitrogen is retained in the soil and available to the crop whatever the weather. This is the kind of innovation we will be bringing to the market.”

“To date our technical sales managers have had a technical advisory role, helping our customers to make the right nutrient decisions,” explains David Harrod, Commercial Director of Bunn. “Now we plan to extend that work to produce ever greater improvements. Stuart will be working in tandem with our global colleagues at Koch Fertilizer to pool ideas and techniques.”

With an Honours Degree in agricultural plant science from Nottingham University, Stuart joins from a company that specialises in fertilisers for turf and amenity, horticulture and specialist crops. He has been developing value-added products for the turf and amenity sector, giving technical support and advice to end-users and can take credit for the quality of the turf in some of the country’s top premier league football stadiums and foremost golf courses.

“This is going to be a great new challenge,” says Stuart. “Working closely with the team here in the UK and my colleagues at Koch Fertilizer I feel there are some great opportunities for bringing further innovations to the fertiliser market. We are particularly fortunate to be based here in East Anglia, one of the leading regions in Europe for agricultural science, and close to the scientists in Norwich and Cambridge.”
