To support agronomic excellence in the north, Agrovista is delighted to announce the appointment of East Lothian-based agronomist, Fergus Scougal.

Fergus studied a degree in agriculture at SRUC (Scotland’s Rural College) but prior to this, gained valuable on-farm experience through a range of practical roles.

Following graduation, Fergus joined Agrii where he built expertise in precision farming as well as row crop agronomy. He now joins Agrovista as a BASIS and FACTS qualified agronomist for the borders.

The 28-year-old said: “My aim is to be a good agronomist with honest values by doing the best job that I can for the farmer. This is how I want to do business - building long-lasting relationships with my customers.

“I’m looking forward to working for Agrovista as the company shares those values. The team is farmer-focused and offers solutions that are practical, not unrealistic. 

“I’m not from a farming background but agriculture has long been my interest, particularly the technical side of agronomy. I’d say my specialism is row crops – cereals, potatoes and field vegetables.” 

In his spare time Fergus enjoys playing sport particularly rugby and horse riding.
