Potato Council research ‘vital’ for UK industry

A potato grower says the research work of the Potato Council is “vital” to maintain the UK’s position as a leading producer. The council, a division of crop levy payers group the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board, works to make the UK potato industry more sustainable and profitable. It has launched a seven week open consultation on its 2015-18 plan. Bruce Kerr, of Monewden, near Framlingham, one of 2,000 UK growers, produces early crops for processing and loose skin Maris Peer for supermarkets on soils ranging from sandy to heavy clay. He says the council’s research work is important to his business and others in the region.
