SEED SATISFACTION SURVEY 2011
During November 2011, Potato Council ran the electronic seed satisfaction survey.
This was the first root-and-branch review of seed and seed supply for 10 years. The survey was for all potato growers to have their say on seed supply and quality.
The results will be used to help inform Potato Council priorities and the results summary is available here.
- Seed is often the most costly input in potato production
- Seed has a huge role in determining the potential yield and quality of any growers crop.
- If growers want to see improvements, they must have their say.
- It's been 10 years since the last major review of seed and seed supply
- Results will be presented back to industry and used by Potato Council to help the potato industry develop.
Over the last decade, there have been substantial changes within the seed potato sector. It has seen rationalisation coupled with significant investment in new technology and delivery of Potato Council-funded research into seed management and marketable yield.
It is recognised that seed is the foundation of any successful potato crop and that customers have a range of requirements. The information from the survey will help the seed industry evolve to meet the requirements ahead. The results of the survey will also help develop Potato Council research and knowledge transfer activity in the seed sector.
