More space for using optical reader when sorting potato seeds

The NAK inspection service decided that it would be possible to sort the seed potato batch into different parts according to quality aspects. Only seed potatoes that do not meet the minimum Class B standards are considered waste. The requirement is that the natural sorting of volumetric sorting must be maintained.

In recent years, optical readers have become increasingly popular for sorting seed potatoes. Using an optical reader, it becomes more attractive to sort “poor” batches of seed potatoes, which cannot be read by hand, into good quality. The current rule is that what is taken from the party is scum. This means that it loses its status as seed potatoes. The result is that the selected potatoes can no longer be adopted.

The Standing Committee of NAK decided last week that this year it will be possible to sort the batch into different parts based on quality aspects. Only potatoes that do not meet the minimum Class B standards are considered waste, provided the normal size classification is maintained.

When a batch is sorted into different attributes, it should be clear what the lower and upper bounds of these aspects are for the recipient. NAK emphasizes that even within these lower and upper limits, it is necessary for the natural relationship of the party to remain present.

In addition, the Standing Committee emphasizes that partial payments must always be guaranteed to be traceable, even over the course of an increasing year. This has to do with the risks of organisms in quarantine.
