We’ve established the role of Farm Data & Information Manager to lead a team of Data, Systems and Geospatial Analysts to provide data-based solutions to our progressive, future-focused business, that has sustainability and innovation front of mind.  Day to day you’ll be working with our business and farm managers to learn about their challenges and provide insights from data analysis that will help them to make robust business decisions.  As part of our broader Sustainability and Farming Systems group, you’ll be leading and developing a strong technical team to achieve results as they partner with the business.
