In addition, Frontier agronomist, Emily Page will be speaking about her role as a member of the AHDB Next Generation Programme for future innovators and leaders of the potato industry.
Alongside Frontier, Kings will be located outdoors on Plot 12 showcasing a range of green cover crops that are suited to potato rotations. With species including Defender oil radish and mustard and options such as the Kings’ biofumigation and EFA mixes, the crops on display will also help growers meet EFA requirements and support with the integrated management of soil borne pests.
