We manufacture and distribute biological farming solutions that are sustainable and usable by both conventional and organic farmers and growers. We believe that the key to productivity excellence in farming, vineyards and orchards lies in keeping soil, plants and animals in optimal health by using the most natural methods possible.

For 25 years, our New Zealand owned biological company has been developing products that harness naturally occurring microbes to help farmers and growers increase productivity while managing environmental issues.

Our R&D focus is to address and solve real time productivity issues by partnering with farmers who trial our products during their development, providing us with feedback along the way. By utilising an inclusive and scientific approach, we develop appropriate, efficacious, and practical biological solutions.

Due to the incumbent’s pending transfer to the North Island, we are now searching for his replacement. As South Island Agriculture Territory Manager, you will be preferably based in Canterbury, working with our farmer and grower customers to deliver BioStart’s product development and sales targets. You will work in an on-farm advisory capacity (75%), recommending appropriate solutions to their productivity and environmental issues. You will also set up and monitor trials (25%), supported by our Technical Lead.

Attending field days and relevant industry events will be a requirement of the role, as will regular travel throughout the South Island, and occasional North Island travel.

Competencies required to succeed include:

  • A passion for environment preservation & biological solutions

  • An understanding of NZ farming systems

  • Appropriate qualification – soil science / agronomy focus

  • In-field sales / advisory experience, 4+ years preferred

  • Ability to conduct farm-based trials
