Full Research Project Title: AHDB Potatoes Independent Variety Trials (IVT) Programme 2008-11
Duration: April 2008 - March 2011

Aim: To provide independent testing of varieties of foliage late blight, black scurf, black dot, silver scurf and skin spot.

New potato varieties undergoing UK National List (NL) testing and Common Catalogue varieties intended for GB potato production will be tested independently by SASA and SAC for susceptibility to foliage late blight in the field, black scurf, black dot, silver scurf and skin spot.  SCRI will provide facilities for field blight testing as well as contributing to methodology for testing for disease resistance.  Data analysis will be conducted by BioSS, which is responsible for analysis of NL data. 

Final results will be published by SASA directly on the online AHDB Potatoes Potato Variety database from which pdf pages can be printed.
