With the focus on how growers can rise to meet the challenges ahead, speakers and delegates will explore how issues from carbon footprints to consumer attitudes, cost inflation to health issues, have affected a seed grower's bottom line.
The event includes a keynote address from the president of the World Potato Congress, Allan Parker. Workshops will tackle export markets, consumer attitudes, virus health, Dickeya dianthicola (previously known as Erwinia chrysanthemi) and cost inflation.
Delegates then reconvene for conference papers on carbon footprints and the challenges and threats to potato breeding.
