Rebecca Shrimpton

Rebecca joined Wynnstay in 2018, to cover the South-West of England as an Arable Sales Specialist. Since then, sales have continued to grow across the whole of the Wynnstay arable product range.

Rebecca deals in all aspects of arable and forage farming, covering areas such as varietal selection, soil nutrition and fertiliser advice.

Farmers recognise the specialist advice that Rebecca is ideally places to offer as a qualified BASIS and FACTS advisor. She can also help you with agronomic crop recommendations, drawing on the pool of strength and depth of knowledge that are provided not just by herself but across Wynnstay’s nationally-traded regions.

Rebecca brings a wealth of experience gained whilst serving for more than 10 years in the role of Regional Seeds Manager for Agrii (formerly Dalgety).

Armed with that knowledge, combined with the solid and enviable reputation that Wynnstay have earnt in the arable trading arena, Rebecca is exceptionally well placed to service the farmers of the South West.

Her role allows her to engage at all points of crop production; from cereal to forage. Each day presents new opportunities and challenges alike and this variety is something that attracted Rebecca to Wynnstay, whose core values in terms of customer service pretty much mirror her own.

For Rebecca, no day is ever the same. She could be soil sampling in the morning, then looking at which bespoke fertiliser nutrition plans could be produced in the afternoon. Or she could spend her time fieldwalking through cereal or grassland crops and providing detailed advice on agronomic issues.

In addition, she could be spending time discussing cropping choices, along with varietal selection to suit the regionality of individual farms. Or she could be busy offering crop advice to help drive the all-important profitability of Wynnstay customers’ businesses.

Given that Wynnstay are one of the few agricultural companies that can provide a complete package be it an arable, mixed or pure livestock unit, it leaves Rebecca more than well placed to develop her career and business growth further and to be able to work with growers to manage and adjust to the ever-changing economical influences that we all face going forward.
