Gary started off growing in hothouses using NFT systems as well as cropping a small block. Currently he crops lettuce and strawberries for the local market. This allows hands on use of plant protectants and nutrients to assess their efficacy and work through various cropping programmes.
Gary completed his Horticultural degree extramurally through Massey University in 2003, focusing latterly on soil science and nutrient sustainability. Gary has worked with Inta-Ag Ltd since 2002 where he specialises in Greens and carrots, and enjoys the challenges of minor crops.
Gary enjoys working and playing outdoors. Work wise he enjoys the interaction with growers and outside of work he has a passion for windsurfing and skiing.Our People
