US seed potato delegation inspects trials in Morocco

A number of US potato growers visited Morocco recently to see how US potato varieties were performing in that country. The growers were convinced that the varieties are doing well in Morocco, and growers are excited to get more official data after the full harvest, which will happen soon. Attendees also visited the fields and storage facilities of several growers who attended the Potatoes USA International Seed Symposium and Reverse Trade Mission in August 2017. Hopes remain high that Morocco will quickly approve the U.S. Pest Risk Assessment and variety registration. Seed growers who attended included Dennis Bula of Wisconsin, Jim Behrens of Minnesota, Carl Hoverson of North Dakota, and Amy Burdett and Peter Joyce from Potatoes USA. For any questions about the trip or the Potatoes USA Seed Program, please contact Amy Burdett at Amy@PotatoesUSA.com.
