Agriculture Minister Michelle O'Neill, MLA sees at first hand the quality of this year’s ‘Comber First Earlies’

The harvesting of this year’s ‘Comber First Earlies’ is now underway. New Agriculture Minister Michelle O'Neill, MLA recently called in with Comber growers Robin and Ivan McKee to check out on the quality of this year’s produce. Angus Wilson, from the leading potato pre packer Wilson’s Country, was also in attendance. While on the farm the Minister took the opportunity of opening up a few drills of the variety ‘Accord’ and was very impressed with what she saw. Angus Wilson confirmed that the eating quality of the 2011 crop is excellent. The lack of rain this Spring has meant that the average dry matter content of the new crops is around 18%, which is relatively high. This has helped to boost eating quality tremendously. Reported yields are in the range of 8 to 10 tonnes per acre. First Earlies are in the shops now and they really do represent excellent value for money.
