Pre-Basic Growers Association celebrates 50th birthday

The Pre-Basic Growers Association, a collective of Scottish seed potato growers who first set up a ground-breaking organization in the 1970s, celebrated the 50th anniversary with a gala dinner in Inverness.

The association’s 40 plus members produce the early generations of high grade seed potatoes from thousands of disease free mini tubers. It was established in 1971 with the aim of encouraging the highest technical standards of seed production.

According to Secretary Bill Rennie, the association had been the first formal group of potato producers to bring together all sectors of the industry when it established its annual conferences in Aviemore in the early 1970s.
