Allan Mudford joined the Valley Seeds team as our northern NSW and south-east Queensland sales manager and agronomist around a year ago, in June 2019.
After a start in the agricultural sector working in rural retail, Allan worked for 20 years in the seed industry in sales and product development, in roles across Australia, including Western Australia, New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria.
In addition to the expert advice he provides to distributors, stores and farmers as a Valley Seeds Regional Sales Manager, Allan works with our plant breeder Anthony Leddin to screen varieties for rust resistance at our Bellingen NSW site.
Allan loves working in agriculture. He grew up on a farm and remains a working partner in the family farm.
“The Valley Seeds focus on breeding for Australian conditions is impressive,” he says. “I enjoy working with a company whose breeding program addresses the requirements of climate variability and the inconsistency of our seasons in Australia.”
