Eye on Potatoes podcast: NPC’s Federal Agency Farm Tour goes virtual

In the latest edition of Eye on Potatoes: More than 160 participants from EPA, USDA, and throughout the potato industry joined NPC’s virtual Agency Tour in July, gaining a better understanding of the pest challenges faced by potato growers across the nation in growing and delivering potatoes to market.  

NPC COO Mike Wenkel calls in to discuss the importance of the annual tour, which provides federal regulators information on pest management related to growing seed and in the pre-plant, planting, in the field, and post-harvest stages. Mike also discusses what the next round of coronavirus food assistance might look like as negotiations continue in Washington.  

Jim Ehrlich, Executive Director of the Colorado Potato Administrative Committee — who was scheduled to host the in-person tour before it was moved to a virtual event — also joins the podcast to talk about potato production and crop protection tools utilized in the San Luis Valley.
