In line with their efforts to introduce the new technologies and innovations in seed production, Solynta Ltd and NPCK succefully held a field day on 29th November 2023 at Molly farm in Tigoni. The Participants comprising of NPT (National Performance Trial Committee), KEPHIS, Biovision, Viazikings and Potato Farmers were able to see the performance of HTPS (Hybrid True Potato Seed) and the different varieties with targeted attributes like resistance to late blight in a sprayed and non-sprayed condition. The event also allowed the participants to see how a local grower is using HTPS to produce own seed tubers and develop her business. This technology promises a lot in the seed industry including addressing the issue of seed shortage, saving on cost and also reducing the bulk on transportation.
