Welcome to the British Potato Variety Database page. Here you can find up-to-date information on all British varieties, as well as Breeder and Agent details.
SASA (Science and Advice for Scottish Agriculture) has launched the new online Seed Potato Classification Scheme (SPCS) service which includes the searchable Scottish Seed Potato Crop Register, Producers Register and Seed Potato Variety Statistics for the current season and previous seasons going back to 2001.
The online Seed Potato Crop Register can be filtered and is linked to the Potato Council's British Variety Database and to the Producer Register which contains quick links to producer’s crops and contact details.
Seed potato producers who would like to make their contact telephone number, e-mail address or company website address visible on the Register are asked to contact SPCS Administration at Science and Advice for Scottish Agriculture (SASA), Roddinglaw Road, Edinburgh, EH12 9FJ, UK.
Online registers and statistics are the first part of the MySpuds project, started at the beginning of 2011 by the Scottish Government, and are available on www.sasa.gov.uk/potato-register. The MySpuds service is the outward-facing database for Scottish SPCS (Seed Potato Classification Scheme) customers and will also include crop data viewing and online applications in the near future. The project aims in improving customer experience and cut the costs down both for the Scottish Government and external users.
