Leading cereal breeding company InterGrain is very pleased to announce that Katherine Munn has joined the business in the role of Territory Manager, covering Southern NSW and Victoria, having previously worked in reseller agronomy with Cotton Growers Services.
InterGrain Marketing Manager Ash Brooks said, “We are delighted to have Katherine on board, her agronomy experience, industry knowledge and understanding of the key on-farm business drivers will be a valuable asset to InterGrain.”
“We are excited to be expanding our territory manager team to further promote our strong product offering across all grain growing regions of Australia”.
In accepting the role Katherine said, “I’m really looking forward exploring my territory, building strong relationships with advisors and growers, and I’m keen to learn more about the seed supply chain.”
“It’s a very exciting time to be joining the InterGrain team. The current product range is very strong, and I’m looking forward to seeing how well our newly released varieties Chief CL PLus, Sheriff CL Plus and Banks perform in the 2019 season. I have no doubt these new varieties will only strengthen InterGrain’s current portfolio, and I’m excited for Eastern Australian growers to try them out.”
Now based in Wagga Wagga, but originally hailing from northern NSW, Katherine has always had a strong interest in agriculture. After growing up on the family farm, Katherine began studying a Bachelor of Rural Science in 2013. Katherine enjoyed working as a crop scout during university holidays so much, that after finishing her degree in 2017, Katherine then moved on to an opportunity to work as a Sales Agronomist in the Namoi Valley of NSW. In this role she gained an understanding of grower needs by working closely with them in their cotton and broadacre cereal enterprises, and used this understanding to deliver tailor-made solutions to her growers.
Katherine’s appointment reinforces InterGrain’s long-term commitment to cereal breeding in Australia by providing growers with access to reliable, stable and highly productive cereal varieties.
