BP2017 – Fantastic event, thanks for visiting us.

This event is going from strength to strength and we found BP 2017 to be an incredibly beneficial exhibition.  We made some new contacts and caught up with many colleagues in the industry.  We showed off our new varieties and some of our promising up and coming seedlings.  We look forward to doing it all again at BP 2019.

Potato Europe Emmeloord 2017 – Busy day after the storm!

After a stormy and shaky start to Potato Europe 2017 what turned out to be a one-day event was one of the busiest we can remember.  We were lucky to be exhibiting indoors where it was dry and warm and we enjoyed a fantastic day with lots of eager visitors attending our stand, the rain certainly didn’t appear to dampen anyone’s spirits.  We thoroughly enjoyed meeting all of our friends and making new, interesting contacts.  A big thank you to everyone who came to visit us, we hope you enjoyed seeing our display of established IPM varieties and our new, promising seedlings.

We look forward to seeing you all again next year at Potato Europe 2018 near Hanover in Germany! Details can be found at www.potatoeurope.com

We would like to thank the National Potato Council of Kenya for running an excellent open day at Nyahururu in Laikipia County, Kenya. It was our first opportunity to introduce our new varieties Tornado, Fandango, Bikini, Imagine and Infinity to Kenyan farmers.

We were overwhelmed by the welcome and supportive comments from everyone we met on the day.  IPM Potato Group and our partners, Kevian Kenya Ltd are working hard towards having certified seed of our own and local Kenyan varieties available as soon as possible.

We look forward to meeting many farmers over the coming months at our open days.
