With the expansion of InterGrain’s plant breeding footprint into Northern NSW and QLD we’re pleased to announce the addition of Matt Naumann to the business’ marketing team.
Matt joins InterGrain having most recently worked at Elders Dalby agronomy team and previously Associated Grain as an integral member of their production team. Matt’s passion for agriculture developed having grown up on a small Darling Downs family farm where he still resides.
Matt steps into the role of InterGrain Territory Manager for northern NSW and QLD and will be based in Bell, QLD, although will be spending a significant amount of his time in trial sites and working on farm to support growers.
InterGrain Senior Marketing Lead Ash Brooks said, “We are excited for Matt to join our marketing team to assist in promoting our strong products in the northern region of Australia.”
“Matt has a very well-rounded understanding of northern farming systems, and we’re looking forward to him working closely with growers to promote the productivity gains available from our new wheat and barley varieties.”
In accepting the role Matt said, “I’m really looking forward to the new challenge, building relationships with advisors and growers, and getting on farm to assist growers in understanding available varieties and system options.”
A key attraction to the role for Matt was his interest in plant breeding and the seed industry and the opportunity to work with breeders, technical, commercial and support staff whilst broadening his knowledge of the whole grains industry supply chain.
“The varieties we have available are not only high yielding, but offer premium quality characteristics as we’ve seen with the recent receipt of APH in RockStar, provide strong agronomic advantages and I’m looking forward to seeing these varieties integrated across northern farming systems.”
Matt’s appointment reinforces InterGrain’s long-term commitment to cereal breeding within Northern NSW and QLD by providing growers and advisors with greater access to varietal information on the most suitable, stable and highly productive cereal varieties.
