AHDB Potatoes has launched a new guide to help potato growers test for Potato Cyst Nematode (PCN), a pest that costs the industry over GBP25m each year.

 

The North-Western European Potato Growers Association (NEPG) estimates the upcoming harvest of the potato crop destined for fresh consumption to be 18% lower than last year’s total, and 8% under the 5 year average.

 

The growers’ associations are worried about the potato production this year, due to weather conditions and drought that hit Europe. Some of them have already mentioned a natural catastrophe, which will soon also involve the processing sector.
