As a senior research scientist and agronomist at AgriThority® for the past 7 years, my work in 2019 was one of the most diverse. I worked with 37 Contract Researchers (CROs) and three University scientists during the year conducting 74 small and large plot studies in fields and in the greenhouse.  These trials ranged from citrus, corn, soybean and potato to citrus, strawberry, sweet pepper, and tomato across 21 states and Canada.

The evaluation report of these 40 researchers includes protocol execution, assessment capabilities, feedback on trial progress, delivery of results, soil uniformity, infrastructure and pricing.  This annual review helps select those who can deliver the most efficient, effective and highest quality results for our clients in the coming seasons.  I have many product development and field research projects underway for the 2020 season and anticipate continuing to build our research network to deliver clients the best possible results.
