Title in English: Get a taste of new talented Robust potato cultivars

Abstract / summary in English:

In the Netherlands the organic sector keeps growing, but organic potato production is lagging behind. This is due to the relatively high disease pressure from Phytophthora infestans, which causes foliage and tuber late blight. For organic potato growers this disease still forms a major cropping risk.
In the potato breeding programme Bioimpuls, the Louis Bolk Institute and Wageningen UR are working together with breeding companies and farmer-breeders to develop robust cultivars that are resistant to Phytophthora. Thanks to these new cultivars, organic growers now have more chance of yield security. The next step is to collaborate with organic wholesalers and retailers to make sure that the new cultivars reach the shop shelves and consumers’ plates. In the Netherlands, the organic market has already accepted new cultivars such as Bionica, Sarpo Mira and Carolus, but other cultivars are still relatively unknown, and additional promising cultivars will become available for the European market in the near future. Together, these cultivars will offer a complete assortment of boiling, baking and multi-purpose potatoes in various colours and shapes. The new talents are presented in this brochure.

Titel in Nederlands: Maak kennis met nieuwe talentvolle robuuste aardappelrassen

Abstract / samenvatting in Nederlands:

Het veredelingsprogramma Bioimpuls van het Louis Bolk Instituut en Wageningen UR ondersteunt samen met de veredelingsbedrijven en boerenkwekers de ontwikkeling van nieuwe robuuste rassen die resistent zijn tegen phytophthora. Dankzij deze nieuwe rassen hebben telers nu meer keuze in resistente rassen gekregen. Maar voordat deze aardappels op het bord van de consument terechtkomen, hebben we ook de medewerking van groothandel en winkeliers nodig om deze nieuwe rassen in de markt te zetten. Het ras Bionica (Niek’s Witte) heeft een plek veroverd op het schap van Estafette en andere natuurvoedingswinkels. En inmiddels hebben Udea en Albert Heijn de nieuwkomer Carolus in hun assortiment opgenomen. Er zijn nog meer interessante resistente rassen in de pijplijn van diverse veredelingsbedrijven. In deze brochure kunt u kennis maken met de nieuwe talenten.
