GETTING GOOD SEED POTATOES [Newspaper Article] — Kyneton Guardian — 20 January 1914

GETTING GOOD SEED POTATOES Two very important matters in con nection' with potato growing have been clearly demonstrated by Mr Geo. Seymour, of Lancefield (writes ,the "Leader"). The one is the supreme necessity of planting nothing but the best seed, and the other is in the dir ection as to how to obtain such seed. In one of his demonstrations Mr Sey mour selected two Brown River pota toes, equal in size and appearance. One was from a good strain, the other from a strain which had deteriorated or "run wild." These were planted and cultivated under similar condi tions. One gave five marketable po tatoes and several seed of good size; the other no potato fit either for seed ; or market. The produce was again replanted. At the end of the season there was the same result. From one there was a fine percentage of mar ketable potatoes, and from the other nothing but mere rubbish. Yet at the beeinning no one could have told from their appearance the potato of good strain from the wild. No o...
