This International Standard establishes guidelines for the storage of potatoes, intended for use as seed potatoes, for consumption, or for processing, in artificially ventilated stores.
The application of these guidelines wil permit preservation of the growth potential and productivity of seed potatoes and of the good cooking quality (e.g. characteristic flavour, lack of discoloration and light colour of fried products) of potatoes for consumption.
These guidelines are applicable only in regions with temperate climates.
