Larsen, Ryan
Dr. Ryan Larsen, Assistant Professor in the department of Agribusiness and Applied Economics, has submitted a grant proposal in the amount of $10,000 to Northern Plains Potato Growers Association.

The title of this proposal is:
“Sustainable Production of Dakota Trailblazer”

The newly developed variety, Dakota Trailblazer, has shown promise as a tablestock and frozen processing variety.  Dakota Trailblazer is a long tuber type with medium russet skin with white flesh and a high yield potential.  Work in 2014 will be used to add another year of data to this project to enable producers to grow Dakota Trailblazer in a more sustainable manner.
