The Potato Council and Horticultural Development Company, assisted by the Commercial Horticultural Association, will again promote UK horticulture at next month's Fruit Logistica trade show in Berlin (5-7 February).

Experts from Potato Council's Sutton Bridge Crop Storage Research will offer advice on crop storage to visitors to the UK stand (hall 8.2; stand A-07), while plant health officials from Scottish Government's Science and Advice for Scottish Agriculture will for the first time advise on seed export and plant health.

The Scottish contingent also includes Mylnefield Research Services, promoting work on plant breeding, pathology and diagnostics, and seed suppliers Caithness Potatoes and Skea Organics, another first-time exhibitor.
