Potato seed survey now online

THE Potato Council is running the first electronic version of the seed satisfaction survey during November.

“This survey will offer all potato growers the opportunity to have their say on seed quality and supply,” said Potato Council head of seed and export Mark Prentice.

“I strongly urge growers to complete the online seed satisfaction survey now.”

Aimed at everyone who buys or grows seed potatoes, the survey is designed to find out how satisfied growers are with the ability to source chosen varieties and whether quality meets requirements.

“Seed has a huge role in determining the potential yield and quality of any grower’s crop,” said Mr Prentice.

“We need the growers to have their say on the improvements they would like to make. These results will then be used to help us target future developments accordingly.”

This is the first seed survey to be conducted in ten years.

During that time, the sector has seen substantial changes, with significant investment in new technology and delivery of Potato Council-funded research into seed management and marketable yield.

“As seed is not only the most important input, but also the most costly one, we now need more accurate information than that gathered previously.

“The results of this search will enable the seed sector to develop according to growers’ needs.”

The survey, which takes about 15 minutes to complete, is available now online at
