  • R452 Soil Workability and Structural Stability

    Aim: To improve cultivation practices in potatoes to increase soil structural stability and lengthen the window of workability, and to develop the findings of project R406. This will initially be a...

  • R439 Reduced Energy Storage

    Aim: To reduce the energy cost and therefore the carbon footprint, and to assess the validity of existing potato storage carbon footprints and, if necessary recommend how they might be improved....

  • R424 Matching Blight Fungicides and Cultivar Resistance (LINK)

    Aim: To provide the potato industry with the robust information required to allow substantial use of integrated control without compromising the control of blight. Industry Challenge Pesticides usage...

  • R419 Inhibitors of Pectobacterium Virulence Factors

    Aim: To utilise the understanding of the genes and pathways involved in soft rot to try and develop low molecular weight compounds that block some of the important steps that allow Pectobacterium...
