SPot farm on film!

NEW VIDEOS: AHDB Potatoes Strategic Potato (SPot) farm on film!

Showing real value from making change.

Explore SPot in comfort, in under 10 minutes, and with a well-earned cup of tea (if you like)…

AHDB Potatoes’ first Strategic Potato (SPot) Farm, introduced in spring 2015, is a demonstration of the latest, independent best practice in a real, operational commercial setting.
Wherever you’re based, you can tap into the results and best practice advice arising from our Staffordshire SPot Farm.

We’ve brought the farm and our findings to you with a suite of new technical videos summarising the research behind the in-field demonstrations and highlighting some of the key observations from the season.
Even if you did attend a farm walk, or joined us at an open day, with so much going on at the time, you can use these online resources to revisit the main messages in under 10 minutes.

Launched at our Winter Forums just gone, the videos provide an easy-access opportunity to explore, question and discuss the findings from the wide ranging technical demonstrations implemented this past growing season by our hosts W B Daw & Son.

Over the coming months, we’ll be pointing out the pertinent highlights surrounding the potato industry’s key seasonal considerations and first up is soils and seed.

WATCH: We’ll be sure to prompt you as timely topics arise from the work on our SPot farm, but if you’re eager for more, we’ve already published the full suite of videos
ATTEND: There’ll also be ample opportunity to attend the location itself over the coming season, and you can register your advance interest to be sure you hear when our next Open Day or walk is set.

RESEARCH: The work at SPot builds on a wealth of previous AHDB Potatoes research always accessible at: Visit the library to access best-practice guides, review seed rate recommendations, and access tools and calculators that can enhance the profitability of potato businesses.
