Rosie Houston

Fruit Advisor

I am from Tasmania, Australia, and after completing my University degree I became an Agronomist and worked on my family’s salad farm for four years.

Moving to England in 2016, I did various seasonal work involving insect monitoring in the soft fruit industry before joining FAST in March 2018 as a Soft Fruit Advisor.

I am based in London and visit growers all over England carrying out crop walking services and giving advice on all aspects of growing for various soft fruit crops. During the winter months I carry out strawberry flower mapping services for our members to help with making informed decisions and crop forecasting.
