Sensitivity and quality
Nofy is a cross between an Agrico Research seedling and the Stayer starch variety bred in Sweden. It goes without saying that this variety is extremely suitable for the starch segment. The variety has limited DE resistance and the same level of resistance to late blight as Carolus or Alouette.
Henrik Pedersen, an employee at the Danish starch factory AKV Langholt, is the breeder of this variety. Agrico has not paid a great deal of attention to starch varieties. In order to also be a leader in this segment, the decision was made to commence breeding exclusively for Agrico in Denmark.
The name Nofy is simply the abbreviation of No Fytoftora, which pretty much describes the variety, while also being short, powerful and easy to pronounce in most languages.
