Potato box store

Storage is key to potato production in Great Britain; about 3½ million tonnes are stored every year and crops can spend as long in the store as they do in the ground. Implementation of best practice is critical to ensure that the storage phase is cost-effective for businesses and delivers the quality that markets and consumers demand.

Currently there are major developments in the industry around the topics of sprout suppression and variety management. For the most comprehensive and up to date information, please go to our new Potato Storage Hub. Click here
