Roger Bancroft

Roger Bancroft - Plant Pathologist

Roger Bancroft is a plant pathologist and has worked with plant diseases and physiological disorders for 30 years. His specialism is the post-harvest management of fresh horticultural produce (fruits, flowers, vegetables, spices, bulbs and root crops etc.) and agricultural crops (such as grains, cereals and oilseeds etc.) and the identification and amelioration of rots, moulds and quality defects that arise during their trading and marketing. He is often commissioned to: investigate the defective ripening of fruits or the cause of deterioration, spoilage and mycotoxin production in storage facilities, containers, reefer and ships’ cargoes etc.; undertake studies to determine weaknesses in supply chains; appraise post-harvest handling practices; quantify biological and economic losses, and prepare forensic expert witness reports and testimony. With over 20 years experience of teaching storage biology, pathology, physiology and post-harvest technology to a wide range of clients from producers, traders, extension staff, importers/exporters to university and PhD students, he is well placed to design and deliver bespoke training courses and prepare dissemination materials. Roger has been engaged in technology transfer, and research and development projects in the UK, the Caribbean and Africa. Most initiatives have involved the study and application of technical interventions and the modification of handling practices to reduce post-harvest losses. He has experience in all aspects of project realisation from conception and design to day-to-day management, reporting and evaluation. Inherent in all such projects has been capacity building of individuals, teams and resource groups.
