In 2018, the CropRecords team gained a new member: Gerard. Gerard is originally from Australia and has a degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from the University of Canterbury in New Zealand. Over the last 15 years, he has worked on control systems for several of the country's/world's largest industrial plants. Gerard is interested in making things better on a larger scale, and he believes CropRecords is a good fit in this regard because he is working to make yields better for all farmers across Western Canada. Gerard lives with his wife and two daughters in Vancouver, BC.
