We are in our second year of running our heritage potato collection through a trial with the aim of nourishing them so well they grow out of having viruses, and small crops etc etc. Our New Zealand heritage potato collection has been endangered in recent years by the psyllid and so we are endeavouring to strengthen them again back to having heavy crops as they used to do years ago. We made a lot of progress last season and were very happy with the results. To see last season’s report and the growout trial process click here. To view our collection click here.
Mark Christiensen also grew a load of seedlings to trial for us and his also look very interesting. I can’t wait to harvest those.
