various potato varieties display in separate crates


Potato Variety Show and Tell

  • Thursday, December 6, 2018, 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM

Over 60 varieties and numbered lines trialed during the 2018 season will be on display for viewing from the Cornell, USDA, and Maine potato breeding programs. Yield and quality information will be provided. Grower input on which lines they like best is gathered and shared with breeders and can help influence future variety releases. Numbered lines and varieties that have performed well in our area will be highlighted during this informal gathering. This is also an opportunity for us to get together as a group and review the success and challenges of the 2018 growing season and identify any upcoming issues, concerns, and/or opportunities. Hope you can join us!


There is no charge for this event.
