Paul Kok (l) and Stuart TweddleIn North Yorkshire (England), Stuart Tweddle grows 36 hectares of crisp potatoes of the Saturna variety. Last year, he invested in a new storehouse, switching over from the English system that uses little air to the Dutch system that uses 100 cubic metres of air per cubic metre of potatoes. He also invested heavily in a complete range of heating elements. ‘These heating elements really made my product dry this year’, a relieved Tweddle tells us.
