INDUSTRY BENEFITS ARE MANY…
The industry is benefiting overall from the introduction of a more compressed seed supply chain.
Rapid seed multiplication as offered by the introduction of the TECHNITUBER® technology provides our customers with the following benefits:
- Rapid introduction of new and improved varieties.
- Less field multiplication with resulting quality improvements from less disease build up.
- Low transport costs for initial TECHNITUBER® seed product.
- Greater traceability of the seed product.
- Better control over the seed production chain.
- Quality seed production capability.
- A speedy establishment of potato supply chains for the emerging potato processing sector.
- The development of seed industries where one was not envisaged previously.
- An opportunity to replace expensive, imported seed with a locally-produced, limited field generation product.
- A reduction in the risk of introducing dangerous and undesirable soil diseases in imported seed.
- Savings in outgoing foreign exchange on an expensive imported product.
