Dr David Tabah, “DT”, is InterGrain’s Senior Wheat Breeder. DT has over 20 years experience in the industry in diverse high profile breeding roles. He was previously Crop Research Lead for the Canola program at Pacific Seeds/Advanta where he delivered market-leading varieties. Prior to that, DT was a Barley Breeder with InterGrain, so he is very familiar with our company and culture, and we are delighted to welcome him back! His career started in the UK as a breeder for several horticultural crops, including lettuce and cabbage, before moving to Enza Zaden to work as a biotech breeder in tomatoes, implementing new technologies within a world-leading breeding program.

DT’s broad experience, international outlook, and deep understanding of breeding methodologies are ideally suited to continue to deliver outstanding new wheat varieties for Australia.

DT was born in the Canary Islands (Spain) and speaks three languages fluently. He studied Biological Sciences (University of Oxford) and holds a PhD in Genetics and Molecular Biology (University of Bristol).

DT also supports InterGrain’s Pulse and Oilseed Strategy, assisting InterGrain’s efforts to secure viable rotation options for Australian farmers into the future.
