Angus Crawford

Angus Crawford has joined APAL as the new Technical Manager.

Angus Crawford has joined APAL as the new Technical Manager to oversee all of APAL’s technical projects and provide his agronomic support to growers.

Angus moves to APAL from a recent background in commercial agronomy where he has been providing agronomic advice to farmers. He grew up in the Goulburn Valley on a dairy farm and studied Agricultural Science at the University of Melbourne Parkville campus.

“I am looking forward to bringing my first-hand experience in conducting commercially focused research projects as well as my experience in commercial agronomy to drive current and future APAL initiatives,” says Angus.

Angus began in horticulture as a research assistant for a cherry project evaluating varieties and management techniques relating to cherry production. He then worked as a project biologist managing and conducting scientific research projects where he specialised in evaluating crop protection products, fertilisers and plant growth regulators for efficacy and residues.

APAL CEO John Dollisson welcomed Angus to APAL saying he was very pleased with his appointment.

“We look forward to Angus filling the very important position of Technical Manager for the industry,” says John. “His agronomy skills and experience with AdvancedAg, Landmark Operations, and Agrisearch Services in the Goulburn Valley will add value to APAL’s skills base.”

Angus can be contacted on acrawford@apal.org.au or via the APAL office on 03 9329 3511.
