ALBATROS – is a medium-early variety, with an increased starch content > 21%, additionally characterized by high, above average yield, intended for the production of dried potato and related products as well as potato meal.

 

BONZA – medium late starch potato variety, which has very high starch content – even up to 24%. It is characterized by high resistance to potato blight and Alternaria. Round tubers with light yellow flesh, high yield. Very good storage capacity, average sprout rest period.

GLADA – medium-early industrial variety with a high equal level of starch yield (19.6%). Variety of low soil and water requirements. High resistance to viruses. Medium resistance to potato blight. Round-oval tubers. White flesh. Ideal for industrial purposes.

HARPUN – medium-early industrial variety with a high equal level of starch yield (19.4%). Variety of low soil requirements. High resistance to viruses. Round-oval tubers. White flesh. Ideal for industrial purposes.

JUMBO – medium-early variety, very high-yielding. Starch content > 21%. Suitable for long-term storage. Resistant to bruising and periodic water shortages.

KURAS – is a late starch potato variety, has yellow skin and white flesh. Tubers are oval, moderately large. The size is pretty uniform and the yield is good. The number of bulbs is right and the dry matter content is very high. Good starch production from a hectare allows for a high price. Kuras can be grown on most types of soil and its resistance to common scab is medium. Kuras has a moderate vegetative rest and is suitable for medium to long-term storage. Combination of high yield with general resistance to diseases makes this a very popular variety.

MAXILLA – is a medium-late variety intended for the starch industry. It is characterized by high yield of tubers, starch content > 21%. It has good storage capacity and long resting time of sprouts.

POWER – an early variety with good yield. Starch content > 20%. Limited resistance to bruising and periodic water shortages. It prefers better locations in good culture.

TRANSIT – medium to early industrial variety, mainly for the production of potato starch. Due to the resistance to cancer pathogens D1, D2, D6 and D18 this variety can be grown on infected areas. High-yielding, with very high starch content, 21% on average.

 

VERDI  CHIPS AND STARCH – Round-oval tubers, yellow peel, creamy flesh, shallow eyes. Very good resistance to potato blight, black leg and Rhizooctonia solani. Tubers are not prone to cracking, they are also resistant to mechanical damage. Verdi is suitable for long-term storage at low temperatures without compromising processing capability. Variety resistant to potato cyst nematode and cancer. Starch content 19-20%. Average soil quality requirements
