Every year Agrico selects a number of varieties that warrant extra attention. These “spotlight varieties” are young, innovative varieties, that are currently taking the market by storm. These varieties are already highly valued by our customers, based on the initial deliveries. This year, Agrico’s spotlight varieties are Palace and Levante. Watch the variety videos below in which our potato experts update you on our spotlight varieties Levante and Palace.
Levante is a promising variety for the retail trade and more traditional markets. Levante is a rather floury-cooking variety, has a beautiful, clear skin and is suitable for boiling, mashing and baking. Levante therefore meets the requirements of the modern consumer. This variety is suitable for both conventional and organic growing. The variety is a member of the Next Generation range. Next Generation varieties contribute to sustainable cultivation, because they offer protection against the main potato disease (Phytophthora infestans) with fewer crop protection agents having to be used.

‘Levante is the environmentally friendly potato with a particularly nice presentation. A combination of high net yield and excellent size distribution for retail in Europe. Suitable for various methods of preparation’-
Palace is a late-ripening, high yielding processing variety. The variety grows easily under different climate conditions and in different soil types and therefore performs well under warm and dry conditions, such as in Central and Southern Europe and North Africa. Palace has a great skin, that offers more opportunities in the market than just processing. In addition, with its low nitrogen demand, Palace is a very interesting variety for the current market conditions.
