Scott Cockburn

Business Manager, Syngenta UK Ltd

Following an undergraduate degree in Agriculture at the University of Aberdeen in the 1980’s I then moved into a career in farm management working for Velcourt Limited, the UK’s premier farm management company. After several years in farm management I moved into the agronomy and consultancy sector, again working for a large farm management company as an “in house “ agronomist, with responsibilities for grain sales and crop inputs.

10 years ago I took up a position as a business manager with Syngenta UK Ltd located across the Central counties of England, this role allows me to maintain contact with arable farmers but also develop strong relationships with the supply sector.
My varied career to date puts me in the unique position of having practical hands on experience across all sectors of the UK arable business, with a passion knowledge transfer and sound unbiased agronomic advice.
