Commercial Agronomist/Project Manager

Who are we?

AgroCares is a Dutch AgroTech company based in Wageningen. With a passionate team of scientists, agronomists, IT specialists, and lab analysts, we contribute to solving the world food gap. We achieve this by providing the people who produce our food with cutting-edge solutions to measure nutrients and other key parameters in soil (SoilCares), in the feed (FeedCares), and in leaf (LeafCares), which ultimately leads to sustainable yield and production increases. ­­

The strength of our technology lies in our in-house developed calibration database. When we set foot in a new country, our agronomists determine the number and location of soil samples we need to collect to “calibrate” this country. This means we need to collect enough soil samples to cover the full spectral range of the soils within that specific country or area. All samples are analyzed in our Golden Standard Lab in Wageningen, where a small, dedicated team of specialists take care of all the measurements and implementations in our databases.
