There are about seventeen different varieties in the assortment of seed potatoes of the Baltic Seeds company: from original seeds (the first field generation) to potatoes of the first seed reproduction. The peculiarity of seed potatoes is that it is an agricultural product resistant to diseases and pests, allowing the use of seed material for several years.
Obtaining the first seed material in-vitro (from Lat. – "in glass") is carried out in laboratory conditions, which ensure the purity of seeds from viruses and diseases. Such primary plants are subject to further cultivation in sterile conditions - in test tubes with a special nutrient medium and natural light. Further, test tube plants are grown in greenhouse conditions isolated from external vectors of diseases and viruses - insects. Thus, the seed material is born clean of defects, allowing you to harvest a healthy and high-quality crop.
Subsequent generations (reproductions) of seeds in descending order, the transition of which occurs after planting / harvesting, are:
The lower the potato class, the higher the probability of the presence of severe viruses and diseases in it, which can be transmitted from generation to generation. That is why obtaining high-quality seed material free of viruses and diseases is extremely important for the annual cultivation of potatoes and the transition to subsequent generations.
In order to ensure the purity of the product and the cultivation of high-quality seed potatoes, the Baltic Seeds company purchases seed potatoes of high reproductions from leading producers in Holland, Germany and advanced seed farms in Russia. We plan to develop our own production of mini-clubs.
