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.
