Health status of seed potatoes

To maintain and where necessary improve the health status of seed potatoes and of the areas in which they are produced

One major asset of the French seed potato sector is that both seed potatoes and their territory are known for their high quality. These two factors are the reason for the recent gains in the market share of the French seed potato sector. However, there is a risk of emergence (or re-emergence) of pathogens due to climate change combined with the extent of commercial exchanges and modifications in regulations concerning the use of pesticides.

Maintaining and strengtheningthe health status of seed potatoes is consequently one of the main aims of InnoPlant joint technological unit.
