US: Maine Potato Board says crop looking healthy

Officials with the Maine Potato Board said Monday that weeks of heat and sunshine in July have done wonders for this year’s potato growing season. Don Flannery, executive director of the board, said that this year’s crop is looking wonderful so far. According to Flannery, despite some parts of Aroostook County and the state receiving up to 4 inches of rain when Hurricane Arthur moved through the state over Independence Day, growers did not see substantial damage to their fields or crops. There also have not been any serious reports of late blight, other crop diseases or damage from pests.
