National agronomy services company Agrovista has recruited Hertfordshire-based agronomist Dan Ives to support further business growth in the county.

Mr Ives’ career includes working for plant breeder Limagrain and then Frontier Agriculture, where he gained the BASIS qualification that enabled him to become a practising agronomist. At Agrovista, he will provide regional agronomic advice across Hertfordshire from a base at Watton-At-Stone.

Area sales manager James Stark believes that Mr Ives’ seed trade experience and his drive for customer service excellence will make him a valuable contributor to the Agrovista team.

“Due to the alignment with our core values and his seed knowledge, we see in Dan someone who fits seamlessly into our business and who will become a great asset to both Agrovista and his customers,” he says.
