Scottish Potato Conference: Your industry needs you now!

Seed potato growers attending the conference were urged not to ‘sit on the fence’, or ‘play wait and see’, before they joined the independent grower-led membership body, the Seed Potato Organisation (SPO), as Ken Fletcher reports for The Scottish Farmer.

Speaking in support of the organisation, Dr Philip Burgess, of, told the conference that far-sighted growers in the sector had recognised that there was a need for an industry body to ensure that the sector was properly represented in discussions with researchers and policy makers.

Stating that there was a real need for leadership within the sector to face current and upcoming challenges, he said real collaboration was required within the industry to ensure that the new grower membership group became a success.

“The organisation needs your support – so don’t put off and sit on the fence – or we might soon find that we’ve no fence to sit on!” said Dr Burgess.
