UK: Region’s growers play role in record potato exports

The Potato Council has announced that a new British export record was set in seed potatoes over the course of the last export season. During the last 12 years, the UK has grown exports from 70,000 per annum to more than 100,000 tonnes – the new record set in 2013/14. While the majority of seed potatoes exported from Britain are from Scotland, Cumbria and Northumberland, the organisation said that Yorkshire is an up-and-coming producer and exporter of high quality seed potatoes with an increasing amount grown in the Yorkshire Wolds.
