According to a news report published yesterday on the Dutch agriculture website Agf.nl, potato seed breeder and supplier of seed and ware potatoes, HZPC, intends to export true potato seed (TPS) in the near future. The company, based in the Netherlands with subsidiaries in several other countries, reportedly see opportunities for the export of true potato seed to countries in particularly the Central African region as well as Asian countries where strict sanitary plant regulations are in place. According to the report, it is expected that the trade in true potato seed might in time ‘even surpass traditional seed potato trade’ in these countries. Source: AGF report (in Dutch).
