2012 Syliva Peterson

Sylvia Peterson of Gentech Propagation Ltd in Dundee was the recipient of the award in 2012. For many years Sylvia was responsible for the tissue culture work at Gentech and for the production each year of disease free mini tubers for the Scottish seed industry. Syvia was often called upon to demonstrate and explain her work to seed health officials and seed importers who were visiting Scotland to see at first hand our seed production systems. Her considerable contributions to these visits helped to enhance the UK’s reputation for high quality early generation seed.
