Grace Milburn BSc. (Hons), MSc., PhD

Trials Manager

CERC conducts trials on a range of agricultural, horticultural and ornimental crops, alongside working on environmental research. We are able to conduct work on a wide range of crops, chemicals and machinery techniques, in addition to conducting environmental monitoring trials. CERC is ORETO registered for testing pesticides for registration purposes.

My personal expertise is with biosolids, their production and environmental impact when used as a fertiliser. I have specifically studied the long term leaching of heavy metals from biosolids to soil and the effects on soil biologyy and chemistry. However, following more than 8 years in trials, I have experience in a range of crop and environment topics.
