Fruit & Horticultural Agronomy

Jonathan Blackman
Horticultural Technical Manager
Hutchinsons specialist team of BASIS and FACTS qualified agronomists advise on all types of fruit, hops and other horticultural crops, both outdoor and protected. Advice and supply includes crop protection products, biological control products and all aspects of plant nutrition (including fertigation).

We also supply a whole range of sundries including growing media, ground cover, plastic films and bamboo canes.  We work closely with our colleagues at Produce Packing in supplying packaging requirements for growers and their pack houses.  Advisory services also cover variety selection, planting and establishment, pruning, post-harvest treatment and storage.  We work in long-term partnerships with our clients, to meet their strategic business aims as well as the day to day decisions on crop management.

Many of our agronomists are leading industry experts and work in close liaison with research establishments and our training and development programme ensures that all agronomists are fully up to date and advice is completely independent.
