Potato Grower's Polytunnel Facilities
cuttings derived from in vitro microplants are raised in specially adapted polytunnels.
Microplants are field transplanted into raised beds in May following 4-6 weeks in modular
containers in the tunnels. These generation 1 stocks are grown to maturity and
the first tuber crop will be harvested in August / September. Re-usable polyprop
covers offer protection from pests and fungal pathogens.
