Testimonials from course participants
Attending the Potato Business School was a great experience that I would highly recommend to anyone working with potatoes. It was great to get an in-depth overview of the entire potato production system, from breeding to evaluation, harvest and storage. There was a lot to learn, but delivered at a level appropriate for experts and non-experts alike. Among the benefits of the course were that the participants all came from different backgrounds so shared their experiences in the potato industry. The course was a good mix of clear presentations followed by practical visits to nearby farms and companies to see what we learned in practice. It was organised very well, as they managed to contain so much in so little time.
