You develop the growing manual for Protealis’ seed varieties with the objective of making the most of the variety’s potential for farmers, multipliers and processors adapted to specific environmental, agronomical, and economical circumstances in the countries of focus in North Europe (zone above Paris).

  • Externally, you develop your network of relationships with customers, institutes, trialing organizations and farmers, with the objective to have a reliable network for trialing and getting input/feedback on market developments, with a focus on German speaking countries. You provide agronomical/technical support and crop and varietal training to customers and to the sales and production team. 

  • Internally, you are the linking pin between management and teams (breeding, microbiology, production and sales) to present and discuss conclusions of the trials on seed variety and new seed tech products, and to translate market needs, opportunities and new technologies into the breeding and trial programs. In a joint team effort, you provide input for and coordinate execution of seed variety registration and application for plant breeder rights to protect Protealis’ interest. You advise breeding and sales on seed variety portfolio composition based on market insight and customer feedback.
