The Island’s potato growers are struggling after heavy rain and then sub-zero temperatures delayed planting of Jersey’s biggest agricultural export.
1 Mar 2018 – William Church, sales and marketing director for the Jersey Royal Company, says other regional early potatoes, including in the British Isles, have also been wiped out by severe cold.
First came the wet start to the year, and now the potatoes that have already been planted are at risk from the extreme winter weather blowing across Europe from Siberia.
(The Island of Jersey is located south of the U.K, near the coast of Normandy.)
