Our commitment to a sustainable future

Back In 2016, we launched the Agrii iq training programme, which we believe is an industry leading initiative to support new talent in Agriculture and equip agronomists with the skills they need to help farmers and growers succeed.

Between 2016 and 2023, 60 Trainee Agronomists have started their iq journey on the ‘educate’ programme with many of them now successful Agronomists.


Your Training Journey:

  • iq Establish – You will begin your journey entering the Establish programme, where you will be provided with the practical and theoretical training to support you to gain your BASIS Certificate in Crop Protection & FACTS qualifications.
  • iq Enhance – Enhance involves a number of elements that will combine and add real value to you and your role as a qualified agronomist. Covering both practical and classroom based training, led by experts in their field.
  • Additional Modules - You will also receive comprehensive and professional Business training which will be complimented by regular Development Workshops. These will ensure you are equipped with the necessary skills & tools to build your own successful agronomic portfolio. You will also explore more in depth modules such as Soils and Seed & Genetics to further develop your knowledge and expertise.

We are always keen to meet individuals who can show their ability and dedication to develop into a successful Agronomist, with the support of the UK’s market leading Agronomy business.

Our training commitment to you is not time limited. We will allow you to grow and develop at your own pace, ensuring that you have a thorough understanding of the many aspects a modern Agronomist requires, in order to support the modern farmer.

What we offer

  • A coordinated programme of induction
  • Training & development as part of the iq programme
  • Mentorship with established agronomists
  • An exciting future with the leading UK agronomy company
  • Career development within Agrii, or possibly with our parent company Origin Enterprises

What we look for in applicants

  • Drive and commitment – a ‘can-do’ attitude, willing to go the extra mile for our customers
  • Someone who has a passion for food production be it arable, vegetable, fruit, or forage crops
  • Someone that has an awareness of the need to develop their own agronomy portfolio, based on building relationships with growers
  • An excellent communicator and team player – but capable of maintaining a high level of motivation when working alone
  • Someone who recognises modern agronomy entails far more than the use of pesticides
  • BASIS and FACTS an advantage (although training is provided)
  • Previous practical experience would be an advantage
