Bon Accord Elite Seed Potato Centre
Bon Accord receives disease-tested in vitro plantlets and microtubers from the Plant Propagation Centre, and multiplies these to produce Nuclear Stock, Pre-Elite and Elite 1 classes of seed. Bon Accord produces a complete range of varieties, enabling New Brunswick seed growers to rapidly respond to changing market demands. The Centre also develops and demonstrates advanced seed potato production technology.
The Bon Accord Elite Seed Potato Centre provides top quality, high class seed to the New Brunswick potato industry.
Production at Bon Accord starts when disease-tested in vitro plantlets and microtubers are received from the Plant Propagation Centre. These are typically transplanted into a soilless medium, and grown out in a protected greenhouse environment to produce Nuclear Stock tubers. These minitubers are stored over winter, and are field planted in early spring. This first field generation yields Pre-Elite class seed.
Pre-Elite seed is field planted to produce Elite 1 class seed, Bon Accord's primary seed of commerce.
