Agronico’s seed potatoes starts from tissue culture plantlets and are transferred to a hydroponic minituber production facility.
These minitubers are planted in nutrient rich, DNA tested soil in the central north and northwest of Tasmania to produce G1 seed which are then propagated on to produce G3-G4 seed potatoes. In March/April each year they are harvested, graded and stored prior to delivery across Australia.
The company claims to be the only vertically integrated seed producer in Australia.
