An exceptional XXVth jubilee edition of the National Potato Days will come soon. The meeting will be held, this year, on 25-26 August, in Bonin, Province of West Pomerania. This place is historically bound with potatoes. The Potato Institute, aimed exclusively at potato research was established in Bonin in 1966.
