New podcast launched: ‘Perfecting Potatoes Together’

Cedric Porter, editor of World Potato Markets, now hosts a new podcast on behalf of BASF in the UK – Perfecting Potatoes Together.

Interviewing leading experts and growers on a range of seasonal topics, Cedric has followed the ups and downs of the potato industry for many years.

In the first episode of the new podcast, his knowledge and infectious enthusiasm for the crop teases insights from Dr David Cooke, research leader at The James Hutton Institute, and Paul Goddard, BASF’s value chain and stewardship manager as they discuss late blight’s evolving population, the challenges of controlling it and BASF’s exciting product pipeline.

Future episodes will look at alternaria, Eurofins trials and bring reports from this year’s harvest in Britain.
