Forthcoming meetings:

We are pleased to announce the website for the 2016 triennial EAPR Section Post Harvest meeting is operational at www.eapr-postharvest.eu
The meeting will cover different aspects of post-harvest research in potatoes, with an emphasis on relevance to the industry. Themes will range from diagnosis and detection of disease, dormancy and sprout control, quality management and technology in post-harvest management.
The program will allow plenty of time for scientific presentations and networking, and with the opportunity of a visit to Wageningen UR and the Post-harvest research group.
We encourage scientists, students, growers, potato producers and industry representatives to attend this meeting.
Further details will be announced shortly but to register your interest in the meeting or for any other enquiries please email: info@eapr-postharvest.eu

Oliver Statham: 1941-2015
It was with great regret that we recently learned of the death, after a long illness, of our former colleague, Oliver Statham. Oliver was chair for the EAPR Engineering section during the 1990’s.  A Machinery Officer for the GB Potato Marketing Board and the British Potato Council he contributed significantly to the development of the Sutton Bridge site in the 70s, 80s and 90s. Stores he helped to design back in 1980 included features such as reverse-cycle defrost, variable pitch main fans and some of the earliest electronic zonal control systems – all well ahead of their time. He was, however, perhaps best known for his role as organiser of many highly successful, Working Machinery Demonstrations held around that period. Our sympathies are with his wife Anne, his family and friends.
Dr Glyn Harper, Co-Chair of EAPR Section Post Harvest.
