From the AVEBE Press Centre

The AVEBE 2011/2012 starch campaign started this week with the supply of starch potatoes to the factory in Gasselternijveen.

The factories in Germany will begin processing on 15th August and the factory in Ter Apelkanaal will start on 22nd August.

Due to a continuous high demand for AVEBE products the campaign is commencing early.

So far, the growing season for starch potatoes has been somewhat erratic. Due to the drought in the spring followed by frost and locally hail a part of the potato crops will not achieve their maximum yield. The recent rainfall has been helpful for the development of the crops. However, the growing conditions in August are now of great importance for the size of the final harvest. Also the weather in September and October is critical for a successful harvest operation.
