Blake joined Farmanco in November 2017, after spending four years with Primaries CRT as Branch Manager and Agronomist, and is based out of Beverley. Blake will provide services to clients in the areas of York, Northam, Quairading, Corrigin and Beverley.
Although not originating from an Agricultural background, Blake has always sought to work within the industry given the close family and community driven vision that agriculture in Australia embodies. After graduating from Muresk, Blake quickly took up a role within the industry as an Agronomist and has worked predominantly throughout the Avon region for the past eight years.
After recently buying a property just west of Beverley, Blake continues to grow his professional portfolio while remaining an active member within the community, still being able to run onto a footy field in winter and swing a racquet in the summer heat.
With a keen passion for new and emerging technology, Blake has always been at the forefront of seeing where new technological advancements can fit within the Ag Industry, and where they may help benefit farmers and industry professionals alike. After a trip to the US and the chance to speak with a few key industry professionals around drone use in agriculture, Blake later began to explore where utilising this technology can help yield a benefit to both industry professionals and farmers here in Australia.
With continual advancements in the technological space, Blake will continue to maintain the necessary insight; exploring and developing the best possible benefits that these new (and existing) technologies can offer in Precision Ag.
