Skye van Heyzen
Innovation Crops Product Manager, Agrii
Born and raised in South Africa where I completed my BSc majoring in genetics. I then decided to broaden my horizons and took on an MSc, specialising in plant science and breeding, at Wageningen University and Research Centre in the Netherlands. At the end of my MSc I came over to the UK to intern and work at John Innes Centre in Norwich before moving onto KWS. I spent seven years at KWS, firstly as an assistant plant breeder and later as a breeder. I then moved to Agrii focusing initially on naked oats and oats working out of there specialist grain marketing division; GB Seeds. I am now focusing on the range of innovation crops that Agrii and GB Seeds are working on and with.
