AHDB Potato Storage Webinar

The recent AHDB webinar ‘Potato Sprout Control: Best Practice for Ethylene and Mint Oil’ gave an excellent overview of the options available for sprout control in the UK following the de-registration of CIPC.

Clearly, the use of ethylene has increased significantly in both pre-pack and processing crops and the webinar highlighted:

  • Ethylene is cost effective.
  • Careful management especially around the ethylene start-up process will result in a negligible effect on fry-colours in processing crops.
  • Store managers need to pay close attention to CO2levels when using ethylene.

It’s well worth a watch and can be found in the Events/webinar archive section on the AHDB website.
