Kellogg Rural Programme Graduate (cohort 43)
Tryphena completed the Kellogg Rural Programme in 2021 (cohort 43) publishing a report titled “The benefits of carbon farming inclusion into pastoral farming”. The report focused on understanding the ongoing factors and importance that carbon farming has in New Zealand agriculture now and into the future. It also sought to understand the opportunities farmers have in making a more profitable business, including farming more sustainably through planting trees in low productive land.
Tryphena was brought up on an arable farm in Canterbury and moved to Southland nine years ago for a graduate position in valuation. She studied at Lincoln University completing a BCom in Agriculture. Tryphena currently works for Rabobank.
