Eastern England: Farming firm Velcourt sets up new agronomy service in the region

FARMING business management company Velcourt is setting up a new independent agronomy service in Eastern England, which is being led by Simon White.

Simon has worked for Velcourt for nearly 15 years, including stints in Zambia and the Ukraine. He has a BSc in agriculture and is BASIS and FACTS qualified.

He said: “Farmers are often concerned about the lack of independence in the advice they receive and the people advising them are often the ones who are selling them the inputs. Our advice is totally separate and independent.”

Simon is talking to landowners, farmers and farm managers in Lincolnshire and the neighbouring counties.

“It’s up to the client but we can help from basic strategic agronomy to a full crop walking service,” Simon says.
