Agrico UK Imports

Dutch seed

Agrico is the leading importer of Dutch Seed Potatoes into England and Wales, which has taken preference in some localities over the years for a number of reasons:

  • It tends to be physiologically older and can therefore mature more quickly for early ware production
  • It has a very good reputation for negligible levels of Blackleg and Powdery Scab

The strength of Agrico's breeding programme means that new varieties with enhanced properties tend to originate from Dutch seed before they are multiplied in the UK.

French seed

As well as Dutch seed imports, Agrico UK has a close working relationship with its sister company Desmazieres in France to supply French grown seed into England and Wales.
