Nene Potatoes

The potato business people want to be involved with

July 2016 News


We recently held our variety trial meeting at Messrs EF Harrold in Norfolk. We would like to thank them along with Messrs OA Taylor Ltd. for giving up some land this year for our trials.

We have grown 30 varieties on the two sites and it has highlighted some useful new varieties particularly those claiming full or partial Pallida resistance such as Amanda, Eurostar and Camel. Tyson from the Greenvale stable, which was known as Lizzy last year looked very impressive as did Georgina.

I am also pleased to say that we have found two potato samplers for the coming harvest.
