Irish Potato Breeders, established in Ireland in 1982 by John Mara, develops new potato varieties.
Agricrop is the trading entity commercialising Irish Potato Breeders potato varieties.
New seedlings are tried and tested in selected locations in Europe, Africa, North America and Asia and evaluated under local conditions for suitability for the fresh market and for industrial processing.
Paramount Production in Russia
Mr Anatoly Pavlovich Voronov of Osen Company Ltd, has reported excellent results in their production of Paramount this year in Russia.
Each year trials are carried to identify potential new varieties to add to and strenghten our portfolio. Seedlings are planted across a range of soils, conditions and temperatures similiar to our target markets. This helps gain a clear idea of how each new variety will preform under commercial conditions.
