English organic vegetable growers may be closer to tipping the balance away from imports for certain crops than the industry realises. That's the view of William Rose, who with 1,000 acres and double that amount under conversion in Scotland, is one of the largest producers. Among its customers are Marks & Spencer and Tesco. "Potatoes may be the first crop to achieve a balance between UK supply and demand within four years," he says. "Imports of carrots could fall to about 40% of requirements within the next 18 months." Apart from these crops, Rose also produces organic swedes, leeks and parsnips, and has trialled cabbage, broccoli and kale. {{FRESH PRODUCE }}
