Yara UK, the leading fertilizer and crop nutrition specialist, is investing in its liquids operation with a key appointment in the central and south west regions.

Robert Hiscock joins as Area Manager responsible for Hereford and Gloucestershire, Worcestershire, Warwickshire and Wiltshire. Working alongside Roger Brogden, Yara’s Liquids Business Manager, Mr Hiscock will also supply and advise on products from the company’s solid fertilizer range.

Mr Hiscock joins following three years at Bartholomew Agri Food Ltd, as a Farm Trader responsible for the Gloucestershire area. As a Forage Specialist at Mole Valley Forage Services he focused on advising farmers on specialised fertilizers, again in the Gloucestershire region.

“We are delighted to welcome Robert to the Yara team,” says Mr Brogden. “His specialist knowledge, combined with his practical, hands on experience – and local knowledge – will be a real asset in what is a key area for Yara. I am sure that our farmer customers will benefit greatly from his on-farm support and advice.”

Mr Hiscock, his partner and two children – Thomas and Isabella – live on the family farm near Cirencester which, originally a dairy unit, now has a more diversified base including miscanthus for biofuels, Christmas trees and a new calf rearing unit in the planning.

“My farming background, and experience in the fertilizer and crop protection industry, is the ideal foundation for my new role with Yara,” says Mr Hiscock. “Liquid fertilizers in particular have tremendous benefits to offer farmers in the coming months and years. Spraying liquid fertilizer is very accurate, it is used very efficiently by the soil and using an N-sensor allows farmers to see exactly where nutrients need to be applied on their land, which this year may not be where they expect. Following this winter’s weather, soil will need this level of cost-effective care and attention.”
