Agronico runs the most technologically advanced seed potato coolstore in Tasmania.
The potato coolstore is constantly monitored and recorded for changes in temperature, humidity and carbon dioxide levels using innovative coolstore technology from Tolsma Grisnich.
The coolstore has the capacity to store over 8,000 tonnes of seed potatoes with 10 sections of 800 tonnes each. Specially designed aeration systems allow fresh air to be circulated through each section, discharging CO2 and keeping the potatoes alive.
A large drive-through corridor down the centre means trucks can be loaded under cover if needed.
The coolstore is right next to the company’s grading and cutting lines, which has improved efficiency.
With an additional 8 rooms currently under construction we will have a total of 18 rooms of coolstorage available.

Agronico are currently building an additional eight rooms to the coolstore which will be completing in May 2019.
Four of the new rooms will have different temperature controls required for vegetables other than potatoes, such as berries, broccoli, hops and carrots.
