New survey: NAPSO seeks industry input on potato storage practices in North America

In a proactive move to address the critical challenges in potato storage, the North America Potato Storage Organization (NAPSO) has launched an online survey targeting industry members and stakeholders. This initiative aims to gather crucial insights to enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of potato storage practices in the U.S. and Canada.

The survey, designed to be brief yet comprehensive, consists of only three questions. It seeks feedback on various aspects of potato storage, from identifying key obstacles to optimizing storage conditions.

By participating, industry members can significantly contribute to shaping future initiatives and summits that are tailored to meet the specific needs of the potato storage sector.

“We recognize the vital role effective storage plays in maintaining the quality and marketability of potatoes,” says Communications Coordinator Emily Merk. “This survey is an essential step towards identifying and addressing the obstacles that impede optimal storage practices.”

The survey is open until July 10, and NAPSO encourages all interested individuals to participate. The organization values the experiences and insights of its members, emphasizing that every response will contribute to a collective effort towards advancing potato storage practices across North America.

Dr. Jacob Blauer, Assistant Professor at Washington State University (WSU), has provided invaluable technical assistance in designing and conducting the survey. His expertise ensures that the collected data will be instrumental in driving meaningful improvements within the industry.
