CUPGRA president John Chinn, said: “For the past 35 years Mike has been a driving force in research and innovation within our potato industry, initially at the Potato Marketing Board and then through its transformations over the years to AHDB today. The award celebrates his knowledge of the potato crop, his skills in knowledge transfer and his influence and contribution to our industry through the translation of applied science.”

Dr Storey said: “I am delighted with this award, especially as it’s from growers recognising the importance of robust and reliable research and knowledge exchange. I’ve been fortunate to be involved with all sectors of the potato industry and, as a leader, John Green critically questioned the potato research programmes to gain insight and turn findings into practical use. Growers and agronomists need to continue that challenge and continue to innovate.”
