Glenn Bryan, Anton Haverkort and John Beddington to speak at World Potato Congress

 World Potato Congress 2012
September 28, 2011
Top potato researchers from Britain and The Netherlands have joined the speaker panel at the World Potato Congress (WPC 2012) due to take place in Edinburgh, Scotland, May 27-30.

Exploiting the potato genome and how new-found knowledge will ultimately impact production, nutritional qualities and consumer needs will be the focus for Dr Glenn Bryan of The James Hutton Institute, Dundee, Scotland.

Anton Haverkort

According to Prof Haverkort, the scientific community attending World Potato Congress will exchange important knowledge with peers and the commercial sector.

A significant issue will be to ensure we move forward together towards establishing a sustainable industry that makes best use of energy, land, water and chemicals as our goal. We’ve worked worldwide to define and quantify the carbon footprint and now we need to develop measures in the potato industry to ensure constraints on production can be avoided.
