November 29, 2011 – An inflatable temporary storage developed by a north Norfolk, UK, potato business could slash costs and create new opportunities for growers.
The easy-to-erect durable structure has been designed to solve immediate post-harvest storage headaches and achieve cost savings. The “Airstore,” which can hold up to 900 tonnes of potatoes, has proved a success at one site. One of the biggest headaches for UK potato growers is the cost of taking potatoes from field to storage. This makes it possible to take the storage to the potato field, which would save in transports costs.
