Research

Much attention is paid to technical research in the Dutch potato sector.

Fundamental scientific research is carried out by the world‑famous Agricultural University of Wageningen. In addition, various institutes of the Dienst Landbouwkundig Onderzoek (Agricultural Research Department), also in Wageningen, perform fundamental strategic and applied scientific research. Practical research takes place at the experimental station of the Praktijkonderzoek voor de Akkerbouw en de Vollegrondsgroenteelt (Research Station for Arable Farming and Field Production of Vegetables) in Lelystad. Additional practical research is carried out at several experimental farms throughout the most important cultivation areas in the Netherlands.

The research efforts embrace a wide range of subjects, such as improvement of the frying behaviour of potatoes, reduction of the crop's susceptibility to diseases, optimisation of envi ron mental ly‑f riend ly cultivation methods and improvement of the potato's internal and external quality. A large proportion of this research is financed by the Dutch potato sector.
