With Skawa you choose a variety that provides a very high starch yield. Under optimal circumstances Skawa accumulates much more starch than the indicated average value. Skawa cumulates the most starch among all varieties from our breeding station. Skawa is undoubtedly the most popular starchy variety in Poland. Skawa is recommended to be planted across the country. It overwhelmingly meets the expectations of starch potato producers.
