Amanda started as a pulse and then oilseeds research specialist in the 1980s. Amanda then moved into plant breeding, first with Cebeco and later with CPB Twyford, where she focused on cereals and oilseeds.
In 2002 Amanda started working with CMI, principally researching oilseed rape in the UK and working with oilseeds and protein crops in Eastern Europe. More recently, and since moving to Dyson Farming Research, Amanda has focused on: cultivar analysis; the management of cereal disease and lodging; and nutrient management, particularly analysis and foliar application.
Amanda has an interest in novel and those new to the UK with experience in flax, linseed, lupins, spelt wheat, soya and sunflowers amongst others.
