Potato industry to descend on town in record numbers

RECORD numbers are expected at the potato industry’s event of the year – BP2011 – which will be held in Harrogate next month.

Featuring commercial growers, packers, machinery distributors and members of the supply chain, amateur growers and students considering a career in agriculture are also welcome to attend the free event at the Yorkshire Event Centre on November 23-24.

Online registration is now open at www.potato.org.uk/bp2011/ where entry tickets can be ordered in advance to avoid queuing on the day.

The industry evening dinner will take place on November 23, with tickets costing £50.
