Local growers start dumping potatoes

Local farmers have started dumping potatoes due to the psyllid outbreak in WA despite no psyllids having been detected in the Albany area. Seed potato growers are still hoping that they main regain access to interstate markets but time is running out. Last week 3000 tonnes were already stockpiled with a further 1000 tonnes still in the ground.
