Interesting fact: Allison has a PhD in plant physiology and did her post-doc work on Christmas trees – working with breeding and hormones to keep needles on the tree longer. She’s also worked in the fertilizer industry. Her heart is in R&D and she spends her summers in the field and in the lab in Breslau.

Allison is passionate about delivering the newest, best products to Canadian growers so that the industry remains competitive internationally. She’s big on food security and environmental stewardship.
