Home » Seed » Overview

Our thriving seed potato business retailing over 48,000 tonnes each year, including 10,000 tonnes of export and 10,000 tonnes of our own exclusive varieties, is managed from a specific office based at Burrelton, near Perth in Scotland. The site is ideally located in the major seed potato growing area of the UK.

Whilst Greenvale is a significant grower of seed potatoes in its own right, the company also has a dedicated seed grower group, producing high quality Scottish and English seed to cater for every customer’s requirement. Greenvale is also the largest supplier of seed potatoes direct to UK growers.

Supplying UK Growers and countries internationally with both our own exclusive varieties as well as free varieties. The dedicated seed potato team based at Burrelton has a wealth of knowledge and experience when it comes to the growing, storing and marketing of seed crops. They also offer a technical back up service which is second to none.

The introduction of seed passports several years ago has ensured that customers receive vital information on every seed stock, from tuber initiation date to tuber counts. Phytosanitary Certificates issued by the Scottish Government ensure all seed intended for export markets are grown to the highest of standards.

Greenvale annually treats up to 5000 tonnes of seed with our unique ‘Accumulator’ storage treatment, which utilises modified atmospheres and temperatures to increase the number of sprouts and therefore stems, resulting in increased tuber numbers.
