UK: Potato growers aim high with best practice workshop

With potato prices under pressure, farmers need to get the most from their crops while keeping costs of production down, requiring attention to detail at every stage. “Potato yields have remained static for the past 30 years despite the development of new varieties, so growers need to do something different to make the most of that potential,” says Simon Fox, director of Emerald Crop Science. He will be speaking at the meeting along with Ibbotsons’ James Hopwood and David Swales from AHDB Potatoes. “We always try to cover a range of topics, looking at how to enhance crops and maximise returns,” says Chris Yardley, technical director of Whole Crop Marketing, who is organizing the event.
