Chris Haydock

Fertiliser & Seed Procurement Manager

I want to ensure our Members are as informed as possible to help them make the best decisions possible for their business.

I am FACTS qualified and recently I was nominated for a Farmer’s Weekly award. I started work in agriculture back in 1985. First off, my work was in the merchant trade. Then I moved to working for a buying group in 2003, and then joined AF in 2008 . Combining industry knowledge with market intelligence, that’s what I do.

Paige Waters

Crop Input Specialist

I enjoy being a point of contact to help our Members face their agronomic challenges and choose their inputs.

I joined AF over 2 years ago, coming from completing a BSc (Hons) in Equitation and Coaching in 2018. I have since gained my Foundation BASIS in Agronomy, which has given me the key understandings of agronomy and the inputs involved. Living on a working farm I understand the pressure and constraints that growers are up against and enjoy being a point of contact to help our Members face these challenges.
