Soil Carbon Technical Officer

Tyson grew up on a farm in central Victoria where his passion for agriculture originated. Working with livestock has driven a career in improved pasture research and soil science. Tyson has completed a bachelor of Agricultural Science at Charles Sturt University in Wagga Wagga.

Since completing a Bachelor of Agricultural Science degree, Tyson has managed a number of complex farming system projects during his time at the NSW Department of Primary Industries. These projects have included developing new pasture-crop rotation systems using second generation annual legumes in as an on-demand break in farming systems and projects identifying elite rhizobium strains for grain legumes.

Tyson has also been involved in large scale soil and farming management surveys which have identified key constraints to crop and pasture production in southern Australia. Coming from a farming background, Tyson has a deep understanding of the complexity of modern farming systems and the need to make sound science-based decisions to improve farm productivity and profitability.

Tyson is a member of the soil carbon team in Select Carbon as a technical specialist. This role includes onsite field validation and coordinating soil carbon baseline sampling.
