Emma Ayliffe is an agronomist, specialising in cotton, who prides herself on analysing the science behind crop production and making this applicable to growers. She also co owns and manages two businesses including a farm and Summit Ag Agricultural Consulting where she is a Consultant and Director.
“I see my role is to empower farmers to manage risk and reach their potential. I also enjoy my role as an advocate for agriculture as a whole, whether it be on the local Cotton Growers Association, the Grains Research and Development Corporation Advisory Panel or helping at a field day, to being part of the team and the voice that represents agriculture.”
Carving a successful agricultural career with her own agronomy business Emma is grateful and appreciative of the direction and opportunities given to her by others and wants to give this same support and guidance to the next generation.
“Youth are the future and it is up to us to shape how we want our industries and our world to look. It is important for us to forge the way for the generations after us, to collaborate with young and old, to bring fresh ideas and perspective and, ultimately, to speak up and represent the people around us.”
