Frequently Asked Questions
Our seed potato comes in 25kg bags which can be collected from our seed growers farm in Greytown or Impendle. For large orders we will arrange transport.
This depends on the variety but bags are useally around R200 per 25kg bag.
One kilogram of seed potatoes costs around R8, depending on the variety and current market prices. However, we only sell our seed potatoes in bulk orders of 25kgs or more.
Generally speaking, you’ll need around 1,200 to 2,000kg of potato seed per hectare.
For large commercial farmers, seed potatoes come from growers who have subjected their crop to agricultural testing to ensure they are disease-free. This is important since potatoes are susceptible to soil-borne rots, viruses and pests. In addition, seed potatoes are only grown a limited number of times from the same stock to ensure plant vigour.
We sell bulk certified seed potatoes to large potato growers. Our minimum order quantity is 25kg.
Seed potatoes for commercial use should be certified seed potatoes.
However, home gardeners can use any potato tubers to create seed potatoes that can be used to grow new plants.
All seed potatoes used by growers should be certified seed potatoes. This means that the seed potato meets accepted quality standards.
For a certified potato to meet these standards requires specialised farming practices, including efficient pest and disease management, knowledgeable crop rotation and isolation, and the use of certified seed potatoes.
The goal of a seed potato certification program is to ensure the seed meets accepted standards of quality. South Africa has an excellent certification scheme that compares well with international seed potato certification schemes.
Certified seed potatoes sold in South Africa will need to meet these standards.
Seed potatoes are available year-round, although different varieties may be available in different seasons. When buying seed potatoes, it’s also important to consider the time of year that you will be planting. You can read more about growing potatoes in our comprehensive guide.
