Iain will be based at the Hutchinsons Kingsmuir depot near Forfar, which was opened in 2013. He will offer agronomy advice and sales of crop production inputs.

Iain Anderson - HutchinsonsHaving grown up on the family farm near Monikie in Angus, Iain is very familiar with the area and is keen to use his local knowledge combined with national expertise to help growers maximise the output from their crops.
Iain joins from Syngenta where he has most recently held the position of Field Technical Manager for the north of the UK. Iain was also responsible nationally for technical support to the Syngenta Barley Seed and Chemical portfolio.
Prior to this, Iain was area manager for Syngenta in Central Scotland for 5 years, offering advice to farmers and agronomists and previous to this worked for 9 years conducting field trials across Europe where he gained a wide experience of agronomy across a range of crops.

This philosophy, allied to technological advances and continuity of management, has proved to be a key strength and one that Mr Anderson is looking forward to being a part of.

“Hutchinsons takes a dynamic, forward thinking approach to supporting growers in the production of quality crops and food in a sustainable and responsible manner and applying local research is a vital part of this, and I am excited about using the data from Regional Technology Centres to refine the agronomy advice I give to my clients,” says Mr Anderson.
