The Potato Partners Academy is coming!
Syngenta’s Potato Partners program will this year, for the first time, be hosting an exclusive Academy and Learning Centre for key distributors, their growers and industry guests.
The two day information sharing event, that incorporates theory sessions and practical field demonstrations, is a key part of Syngenta’s investment in supporting innovation & education in potatoes.
Those attending will experience first-hand just how the Syngenta Research & Development team develop and deliver new products to the Australian potato industry. Attendees will also hear from a range of guest speakers and develop an in-depth understanding of MIRAVIS™ & VIBRANCE® PREMIUM, just two of the innovative products coming through the strong Syngenta innovation pipeline.
Richard Packard, Product Lead Potatoes & Vegetables for Syngenta Australia said “the team have done a great job getting the Learning Centre site planned and planted, despite some challenges with weather conditions over the last few weeks.”
“It will be a great couple of days and I’m confident that the Potato Partners Academy participants will get a huge amount of value from the event.”
In addition to the Learning Centre site in South Australia, plans are also underway to plant a site in Tasmania with a more specific link to the processing potato sector.
