HZPC pays almost five percent above forecasted price

HZPC LogoThe low European ware potato prices, which clearly stayed behind compared to previous years, influenced the seed potato prices for Crop 2014. This effect is partly compensated by the sales oversea, which ran again successfully. HZPC has set the standard with its forecasted price this year, and with the present final growers price, this standard is even slightly exceeded. The average price of all varieties for the seed potatoes in class E based on delivery in autumn, is € 28.32 per 100 kilo before deduction of the breeders fee and excluding VAT. Growers grow and deliver from classes S until A. The average price of all these classes is € 28.81, because relatively more seed potatoes are grown and delivered in the higher classes and the prices are higher for these classes. More
