Online filing programme is hugely popular; Farming.

THE Potato Council has introduced an online programme for filing returns to cut costs and administration time.

The e-planting returns system consists of a searchable map, which locates a field by the place name, map reference or DFIS number. A drop down menu of market sectors and potato varieties is also included to simplify the task.

The website went live as a pilot project last year and has now become a permanent fixture after positive feedback from the industry.

Potato Council spokeswoman Inga Martin said: "It is incredibly easy to use but comes complete with an online user guide for first-timers and is supported by our technical team.

"The map data is validated instantly and there are prompts at each stage to ensure that no inaccurate or incomplete returns can be filed, saving a huge amount of time."

New users are required to register, which can be done by calling (01865) 782203 or emailing registration@potato.org.uk.
