Linda Peacock a Syngenta award finalist

Amid improved agri conditions, a complicated global market and a pandemic, and in the face of a changing climate, there has never been a more important time to promote leadership in agriculture, according to Syngenta’s Paul Luxton, who today announced the 26 regional finalists of the 2020 Growth Awards.

Our very own Linda Peacock, Industry Liaison & Technical Specialist here at KVH, is one of the finalists with the independent judging panel saying they were impressed with her contributions to the agriculture industry and her thoughtful responses to their questions. Congratulations Linda!

The Syngenta Growth Awards recognise leading growers and farm advisers from different regions across Australia and New Zealand, showcasing their contribution to the industry. Nominations were by invitation and the 26 finalists will go onto the final stage of judging, with overall winners to be announced early next year.

Mr Luxton is the managing director and country head of Syngenta for Australia and New Zealand and said recognising individuals who were leading the way in agriculture was vital to the future of the sector across the two countries.

Nominees were asked to complete a series of challenging questions designed not only to demonstrate their achievements and their expertise, but to uncover their views about collaboration across the industry.
