UK: Digging into the detail of the Strategic Potato Farm

Over forty potato growers, farm staff, seed breeders, advisors and agronomists met in Rugeley, 3 December to debate the practical outcomes of AHDB Potatoes Strategic Potato Farm, in Staffordshire. Seed rates, nutrient planning, cultivations, water management, in-field greening and precision farming were among the hot topics on the agenda. AHDB Potatoes technical executive, Hannah Goodwin who organised the event said, “AHDB Potatoes spends £1.5m annually on R&D topics chosen by the industry as being important to the sector. On-farm implementation of this R&D is absolutely vital to drive our £4.1bn industry forward and that’s why we’re here today. Our Strategic Potato Farm helps do just that and has only been possible with the immense support from innovative Staffordshire–based host farmers James and Sam Daw and their motivated team.” More
