In 2013 our Chairman participated in a tri-state variety assessment trial in the USA. Potato breeders from Idaho, Oregon and Washington States gather annually to assess trials of several hundred lines grown on from earlier breeding trials and including some new ones.
In February 2010 Nick Roskruge was invited to do a presentation at ATEC in Jinju in South Korea on the horticulture sector in New Zealand – including future markets. The trip included a presentation at the local Museum of Agriculture (picture below).
