New appointment for Bayer CropScience

Bayer CropScience, New Zealand, has appointed Dr Han Eerens to a newly created position of Product Development Manager, covering the northern half of the North Island from his location in Hamilton, near Ruakura.

His role includes conducting trials on a range of crops, developing new products and uses, and providing technical advice to service industries and growers.

Originally from the Netherlands, Dr Eerens brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experiences having completed his M Agr Sc in 1985 at Wageningen University in the Netherlands, majoring in plant breeding and nematology, which included a stint with CSIRO on tropical crops and forages in Queensland, Australia.

He completed his PhD in 1996 from Lincoln University working on ryegrass endophyte.
