UK: Award-winning potato breeder to speak at sector conference

Morrice InnesAn award-winning potato breeder from the north-east is among the line-up of speakers confirmed for a major potato industry conference next month. Morrice Innes, who alongside his wife Ann grows and maintains nearly 700 varieties of potatoes at his home in Oldtown, Newmachar, will discuss heritage varieties at the annual conference of the SAC Association of Potato Producers (SACAPP). The full-day event takes place on Wednesday January 18 at Perth Racecourse. Mr Innes will speak together with John Marshall, from Perthshire, who along with his wife Rhona helped the Innes couple win two gold medals for potato exhibits at the Chelsea Flower Show. Event organiser Dr Stuart Wale – a potato industry expert from SRUC – said: “Their displays are outstanding and what Morrice and Ann Innes, together with John Marshall, have done in their quiet way to promote potatoes is worthy of recognition. I am sure it will be a real talking point over lunch.” More
