LONG Rob

Rob Long has worked as a consultant/agronomist in the Moree district with broadacre cropping and cotton since 1988. Over that time Rob has built extensive knowledge of the linkages between crop nutrition, crop phenology, soil water dynamics, plant pathology and how these factors all interact to mitigate crop losses and derive sustainable farming systems. Rob jointly founded Crown Analytical Services in 2008, a business that provides a service assisting farmers their advisors with crop disease management. CAS’s most recent project has been to use molecular diagnostics (soil DNA) to monitor, map and manage Verticillium and black root rot in cotton.
