Dr Tom Storr
Tom works between the Dyson Farming Research and Dyson Farming Agronomy teams, with the odd day on the farm too.
Prior to this, Tom undertook a PhD at Cranfield University, which was co-sponsored by G’s Growers and investigated ‘the effect of cover crops on soil quality indicators in a cereal and salad rotation.’ This further study of soils and cover crops was inspired by his undergraduate degree where Tom was introduced to the idea of conservation agriculture.
To complement this academic study, Tom spent his summers working for several large farming businesses as a harvest student. Tom is interested in research that improves the resilience and productivity of soils throughout the rotation.
