UK: Angus event helps growers tackle PCN

Potato Cyst Nematode (PCN) was the topic of the afternoon at this new technical event held this July at the family farm of John Reid at Newmill of Balgavies, near Forfar. PCN was identified as one of the top five issues facing the industry as a whole during Potato Council’s 2013 “Direction through Dialogue” discussions throughout 2013. Welcoming the large audience of growers and industry to the event, Alistair Redpath, Chief Executive of PseedCo, leading seed growers and member of the QV group gave a sobering overview of the threat of ‘PCN creep’ to our industry.
