We are pleased to announce that Agri-Tech East has welcomed a new member to our award-winning team, Alex Dinsdale, to help support our future growth plans, in keeping with the fact that so many of our members are based in the wider UK and internationally.
Alex comes to Agri-Tech East from precision farming business SOYL, where he was area manager for Norfolk for the past three and a half years. Prior to a stint at an agri-tech start-up business called URSULA Agriculture, Alex was with the NFU in a variety of roles for around ten years.
Alex says: “I’m really excited to be joining Belinda and her colleagues at Agri-Tech East and am looking forward very much to helping the organisation grow.
“The developments in agricultural innovation and technology that we’ve seen over the past few years – and are continuing to witness – represent massive environmental, economic and social opportunities, that Agri-Tech East has helped support, promote and develop so well over the past few years.
“East Anglia has a fabulous record here, as well as a great collection of world-leading organisations and research institutions. But, of course, there is plenty more potential elsewhere and I’m looking forward to exploring how Agri-Tech East can work effectively with more companies and organisations across the wider UK, and beyond, to help agricultural technology, innovation and sustainability to develop.
“I have always had a strong interest in both technology and the natural environment, and I am really excited by how Agri-Tech East is leading the way in bringing these two seemingly disparate themes together. Approaches including regenerative agriculture – encompassing improved soil management, carbon sequestration and habitat restoration – will generate a far greater impact on-farm when integrated alongside the latest in agricultural technology and data utilisation. Bringing these themes together as part of ‘One Agriculture’, with Agri-Tech East driving forward this approach, will see agriculture’s environmental sustainability continue to improve.”
We at Agri-Tech East are very much looking forward to working with Alex – and if you want to say hello keep an eye out for Alex at our future events!
