The Northern Grower Alliance (NGA) has a new face in northern New South Wales following the appointment of Denielle Kilby to the position of trials agronomist.

Ms Kilby will be based in Moree and oversee NGA trials in the Moree, Mungindi and Goondiwindi districts, continuing the work previously undertaken by Rachel Norton who has moved into a new role as NGA communications manager.

Ms Kilby hails from a mixed farming property near Collie and has a solid field agronomy background as a result of roles with Landmark at Walgett, Parkes and Forbes, making her an ideal addition to the NGA team according to NGA chief executive officer Richard Daniel.

“Denielle’s experience in responding to growers’ agronomy needs combined with her practical farming background and an already-sound understanding of scientific methodology mean she is extremely well suited to the trials agronomist role,” Mr Daniel said.

Established in 2005, NGA is a grower solution group funded by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) that coordinates and conducts applied agronomic research in response to the needs and priorities of northern grain growers.

A number of GRDC projects covering weeds, diseases, pests and production efficiency are currently being coordinated by NGA with the aim of delivering best practice agronomic recommendations to northern growers.

Ms Kilby can be contacted on mobile 0488 044713 or email while Rachel Norton can be contacted on mobile 0447 924917 or email
