Meet Researchers Addressing Industry Challenges at Potato Expo

Researchers are addressing many of the challenges faced by the potato industry, from viruses to improved breeding methods. The 2017 Poster Session provides the opportunity to learn about what leading scientists are doing to tackle knowledge gaps in the potato industry.  Discuss one-on-one with leading researchers how their findings can help you overcome breeding, field and marketing hurdles.

The just announced 2017 posters, coordinated by the Potato Association of America, will include:

  • Breeding for Resistance to Columbia Root Knot Nematode in Potato
  • Crystal Green Grower Trials
  • Distribution and Management of Fungicide-resistant Strains of the Potato Pink Rot Pathogen
