Dara O'Doherty

Technical Account Manager

Dara comes from Co. Louth in the Republic of Ireland and came to the UK in the 1990's to complete a degree in Agriculture, graduating from Writtle College and Seale Hayne in Devon. She has always been interested in field trials and research and development work, and started as a trials officer with Zeneca and then Syngenta, finally running a field station in Lincolnshire. This is where her interest in vegetable agronomy started.

After working for Syngenta for 12 years, Dara took a job as a Vegetable Agronomist with Agrovista, spending 3 years in the East Midlands region. This was a great platform to learn about most vegetable crops, including roots. During this time Dara gained the BASIS Diploma in Agronomy.

More recently Dara has taken roles with Produce World and the G's businesses responsible for New Product Development and Variety development. These roles have included product launches into most major UK Retailers and running extensive in-house demonstration sites to showcase new developments.

Dara is married, and has a little girl, and enjoys gardening and taking an active role in the local WI.
