Engage Agro Europe appoints new agronomist as part of future growth programme.
Mike Stoker has joined Engage Agro Europe (EAE) as the company’s new Technical Manager and will work with the UK team overseeing all technical aspects of sales from the European agronomists and the distribution of EAE products across Europe. As part of Mike’s new role, he will also oversee several new projects the company is currently developing.
Mike will join a dynamic EAE team which will benefit from his experience and knowledge and enable the company to expand its activities. EAE is a major supplier of crop nutrition and crop care products which comply to the ethos of sustainable agriculture.
Mike has extensive experience over the past 30 years, working within the fruit industry from grower to agronomist. He spent the last 18 years working for Phosyn/Yara UK as its National Horticultural Agronomist advising growers on plant nutrition.
Joining EAE is an exciting challenge as the accumulative wealth of knowledge within Engage Agro Group across the world in advanced nutrition open up many new areas for him to explore. Mike knows it will enable him to adopt a more holistic agronomic approach, emphasising and understanding the importance of plant health. EAE’s portfolio of exciting new technologies and proven benefits to plant processes and mechanisms will expand Mike’s knowledge even further so that he may advise and assist growers to a comprehensive level.
One of Mike’s projects is to develop a nutrition consultancy service (DNA Digital Nutrient Agronomy) for large scale fruit production. The project will combine nutritional agronomy with drone imagery and mapping, with an end goal of achieving nutrient sufficient healthy plants which have a greater ability to tolerate abiotic and biotic stress’s – leading to producing high quality nutrient dense fruit whether it be Top fruit, Soft fruit, Grapevines or Stone fruit.
According to Mike “I have been fortunate and had the great pleasure of working within the fruit industry for the past 30 years from grower to agronomist. I will be able to utilise my passion and knowledge in what is a tremendously exciting opportunity ahead with Engage-Agro Europe.”
