Mark has been in the industry since the late 1990s and his enjoyment of the job has only increased with the passage of time.

Donna says she does, “everything except drive the fork-lift”. Apart from taking care of all paper-work, payroll, GST and more, she will work the shop floor, answer the phones and make sure the lads are exactly where they’re supposed to be. Like the rest of the team she is super customer focussed. Outside of work, Donna is a keen runner, has three grown-up boys and enjoys a pastoral life in the Outram area.
Nick is our mechanical engineer, specialising in maintenance and diagnostics. He began his career working on roading machinery, before eventually finding his way into the agricultural sector. When not at work, you’ll find Nick either enjoying one of the many mountain bike tracks around Dunedin, or simply getting stuck into some good old DIY.
Drew grew up on a farm at Middlemarch, completed a Dip Ag at Lincoln College, and having farmed at both Middlemarch and Pukerau (Eastern Southland), experienced first-hand, farming in a variety of environments. After selling his farm 25 years ago, he was given an opportunity by CRT to learn about the seed business with the J S Skinner team. Since then he has enjoyed working with farmers to develop and evolve their cropping and re-grassing programs and his involvement with bringing new genetics and technology to farmers has served to increase his passion for farming and agriculture. The new challenge with Agrispray Ltd allows him to continue his involvement with farmers he has long had association with, and allows him the opportunity to meet new farmers and assist with solving their unique challenges. Married with two sons (now working overseas), he is fortunate to live on a small lifestyle block near Mosgiel. His involvement with Rotary and helping Shona in their large garden keeps him busy after work.

The following 7 years found him in Engineering before joining CRT in March 1995. Starting on the shop floor he worked in several areas of the business, including 10 years as a technical field Rep and 10 years as Sales Manager before taking on a new challenge as an Agronomist at Agrispray in July 21.

I was brought up on a local sheep and beef farm and have been working in the Agricultural industry for the past 22 years. Upon finishing Lincoln University, I spent 12 years working on Agresearch farms at Invermay, mainly working with the Deer Research teams. I then spent 10 years working as a Field Rep and Agronomist for CRT and Farmlands where my focus was on, on farm agronomy services including recommending seed, chemical and fertiliser to customers as well and training and advising the field team throughout Otago.
I live in Outram and am married with 3 children that all attend Outram School. In my spare time, I enjoy local rugby, mounting biking, fishing, the odd trail ride and getting along to the kids sport in the weekends.
In my new role as an Agronomist at Agrispray my focus will be on getting out on farm recommending seed and chemical and how these can best fit the farm and the farmers goals. Following up and monitoring crops and pastures to make sure are working are equally as important. I enjoy working with farmers, advising on products and technologies to help improve farm productivity.
