In the presence of HRH King Willem Alexander, the Dutch Government through Minister Henk Kamp honored Solynta as Dutch National Icon for its breakthrough discovery Hybrid Potatoes “This breakthrough technique makes it possible to grow potatoes from true-seed instead of seed-tubers and makes targeted breeding possible. Valuable traits can now be utilized, like disease resistance, nutritional value, and higher yields” Solynta underlines with this project the important Dutch contribution to the global food supply.”
