Dr Dermot Dawson


After the retirement of Mr. Tozer in the 1950s  Dr Dermot Dawson and his family took over the company and steady business expansion was to follow.  In the 1950s and 1960s world renowned lettuce varieties Cobham Green and Mayfair were introduced and Dermot Dawson devised the world’s first method for mildew resistance screening resulting in the successful variety Mildura.
