Seed potato production is placed with dedicated growers in Scotland, England and the Welsh borders. This is supported and supervised with agronomy provided by Scottish Agronomy Research Limited and enables us to offer top quality seed at competitive prices. . Roguing is an essential practice in the production of healthy seed potatoes. It is the process of identifying and disposing of abnormal plants, including tubers and seed pieces. The affected plants may be diseased, another variety or simply different. The training course in June is CANCELLED.

Potato plant flowering is a normal occurrence, but the flowers usually just dry up and fall off rather than producing fruit. Why potato plants flower can depend upon the temperatures or excessive amounts of fertilizer. Plants that experience cold nighttime temperatures will set fruit. Also, high amounts of fertilizer can encourage the formation.   Potato plays an important role in food security in Kenya but yields are low (<10 t/ha), and this is partly attributed to the lack of healthy planting material. This study is the first wide-scale survey to determine the occurrence and distribution of common potato pests and diseases in Kenyan seed (certified and quality declared) and ware crops.

The total world potato production is estimated at ,, tonnes in (Source: FAOSTAT, )The world potato sector is undergoing major changes. Until the early s, most potatoes were grown and consumed in Europe, North America and countries of the former Soviet Union. Since then, there has been a dramatic increase in potato production and demand in Asia, Africa and Latin America. Around , tonnes of cereal seed tonnes of other seed are certified by NIAB during the year. NIAB’s Agricultural Crop Characterisation team records over 3, certification plots, covering 38 species, and coordinate an annual programme of over 1, seed crop inspections.

As more than 80% of seed potatoes in the UK are of Scottish origin, it is a real concern that the loss for producers, who rely in part on the European market, could have an impact on our domestic.

The Scottish seed potato industry accounts for 75% of all UK production and is worth an estimated £80 million. Potato virus Y is widely distributed in the potato growing areas worldwide. PVY is transmitted non-persistently by non-colonizing aphid vectors, resulting in rapid acquisition and transmission of the virus.

The sessions covered in this volume reflect the revolution of tissue culture and its role in the propagation of elite plant material and the development of improved genotypes. Potato growers advised to mind spray drift and effective coverage to prevent blight infection.

Keeping late blight out of potatoes is a season long campaign for growers and one that seems to be getting tougher as the years go by, with seven day spray intervals now standard practice, say crop specialists at UK based adjuvant supplier, Interagro.
