Nene Potatoes

The potato business people want to be involved with

June 2016 News


We have recruited one harvest potato sampler but still need another. If you know anybody looking for work between mid-August and mid-November please let me know.

In June Pat, Paul and Bryonie attended the CUPGRA open day. They were shown a variety of plots from the research programme looking at areas such as the effect of plant density on canopy, light interception, stolon length and disease resistance.  

As most will know we had a hospitality suite at Newmarket races on Saturday the 25th June. Members, exec and a few other guests enjoyed a very good day despite thundery downpours!

We will be holding our variety trial meeting at the end of July where we will view dug samples and have a farm tour at EF Harrold Ltd.
