New Seed Manager for Hutchinsons

Posted on

david bouch will take on the role of national seed manager at hutchinsonsCrop production specialists Hutchinsons have appointed David Bouch as their national seed manager (designate).  David will work alongside the current national seeds manager Colin Button until Colin retires in 2017 after 18 years in the business.

David brings additional expertise to an already well established and successful team. A former student of Riseholme Agricultural College, David has worked in the UK farming industry for over 31 years, first as an arable specialist and subsequently as a seed specialist.

David is looking forward to leading the Hutchinsons seed business, and believes that there are significant opportunities within the seed sector as innovative seed technologies develop.  Investment in genetic improvement through conventional and hybrid techniques is already demonstrating that yield, quality and characteristics such as disease ratings and lodging scores can progress significantly now and in the future.

Much of this investment originates in the multinational research and development companies that have substantial investment capacity and for whom Hutchinsons is a leading UK partner.

“Hutchinsons takes a dynamic, forward thinking approach to supporting growers in the production of quality crops in a sustainable and responsible manner. The seed sector is a vital part of this process and one that I very much enjoy being part of,” he says.
