     Potato Europe 2012

    Easily the biggest potato event in Europe this year, Potato Europe took place in the middle of this region, close to the village of Villers-Saint-Christophe.

    While visitors saw all the latest three and four-row harvesters from Dewulf, Grimme and AVR, the biggest surprise came from a machine which, from the outside at least, looked like a new John Deere creation.

    Further probing revealed it was made by French company Pouchain, whose designer is a keen John Deere fan. With a previous history of chicory harvester manufacturing, the company’s first attempt at a potato harvester is called the PDT 12.
