Agrico presents "the next generation of potatoes" at Fruit Logistica 2018
Agrico presents "the next generation of potatoes" at Fruit Logistica in Berlin, Feb 2018. Many years of intensive breeding efforts have resulted in Agrico being the first company to offer a complete package of phytophthora resistant varieties. In addition to their extremely high resistance to late blight (Phytophthora Infestans) - the major disease affecting potatoes worldwide - these varieties offer outstanding consumption traits and good yields. This package allows Agrico to offer its customers a sustainable and diverse range with a variety of flavours, appearances and processing options.
The package of varieties with high phytophthora resistance consists of Carolus, Alouette, Twinner, Twister, Levante and the new starch variety Nofy.
