Expertise, experience and insight: Meet our judges

One of the reasons the Syngenta Growth Awards have been well-regarded since its inception is that winners are selected by an independent judging panel made up of industry experts.

Critically, the judging panel comes from across the supply chain, allowing for a range of perspectives when reviewing applications.

What happens on farm has implications throughout the supply chain and right through to the global economy, so it's important the judging panel includes a mix of technical expertise, industry experience and broad insight that reaches far beyond the farm gate.

This year's judging panel included:

Brianna Casey - CEO, Foodbank Australia

Kirrily Condon - Agronomic Consultant, Grassroots Agronomy

Richard Heath - Executive Director, Australian Farm Institute

Ian McConnel - Director of Beef Sustainability, Tyson Foods

Paul Luxton - Country Head Managing Director, Syngenta Australia and New Zealand
