New tools for growers to be launched at British Potato 2017

British Potato 2017 is an occasion for launching and introducing working tools for growers. The event takes place in Yorkshire Event Center, Great Yorkshire Showground, Harrogate, UK, during November 22-23. For example, Fera, an international center for interdisciplinary in investigation and problem solving across plant and bee health, will present a new in-field diagnostic tool for potato nematodes. On the other hand, AHDB Potatoes will launch a tool which allows growers and those in the supply chain to examine data on price, variety, planted area, market sector and yield. Senior nematologist Tom Prior will discuss Fera’s new in-field diagnostic tool, scheduled to be launched in 2018, which is able to rapidly identify root-knot nematodes from plant material, in addition to soil analysis service. AHDB Potatoes will launch Potato Data Center (PDC) at BP2017. The tool allows growers and those in the supply chain to examine data on price, variety, planted area, market sector and yield. More
