Changes to British Potato Trade Association terms 'a positive move for the seed potato industry'

The British Potato Trade Association (BPTA) will launch revised terms and conditions surrounding the sale and purchase of seed potatoes

The British Potato Trade Association (BPTA) will launch revised terms and conditions surrounding the sale and purchase of seed potatoes on May 1 2012, providing growers with much needed confidence that claims for contamination will be dealt with effectively.

Following discussions between the BPTA, NFU and NFUS over the past two years, the updated terms and conditions set out more clearly the terms under which a claim can be made against seed damaged either by injurious chemicals or through contamination with other varieties.

The terms also clarify the responsibilities of the parties involved and the potential size of the claim.
