PFA – Potato Farm-Saved Seed Agreement


• From Spring 2013 a number of potato breeding companies, including Cygnet PB Ltd,          

introduced the Potato Farm-saved Seed Agreement – PFA – for selected potato varieties.


• The PFA Scheme provides an alternative option for breeders and growers and operates alongside the existing Farm-Saved Seed – FSS – royalty collection system.


• Under the PFA Scheme growers are assigned a unique and non-transferrable code which entitles the grower to purchase seed of qualifying varieties under the breeder’s individual terms and conditions for the variety.


• To request a Potato Farm-Saved Seed Agreement growers should contact BSPB directly on 01353 653 844 or by e-mail to  


Customers who have registered with the BSPB for PFA qualify for a discount of up to £25 per tonne on PFA-Scheme qualifying varieties on the production of their unique grower code.
