Sweetpotato Slips

Good Sweetpotatoes start with good seed and slips. Sweet potato seed has to be refreshed constantly because it loses quality from year to year. Viruses can infect a crop, resulting in reduced yields, poor quality and misshapen tubers.

 

Micropropagated mother plants are used to produce our seed stock and subsequently our slips. Micropropagation ensures all viruses that may affect the growing potential of a Sweetpotato plant are eliminated. We aim to supply the best UK grown Sweetpotato slips to farmers and growers.
