2013 Field Research and NPPGA Field Day

The Northern Plains Potato Grower Association Field Day will be held on Thursday, August 22, 2013. The Field Day will start at 7:00 am in Larimore at Hoverson Farms with breakfast followed by research presentations. Lunch will be served at the Forest River Colony near Inkster, ND at noon. Following lunch a field tour of the irrigated research trials will be given. The last stop will be at Oberg Farms in Hoople and will include research presentations and a BBQ. As in previous years, the potato research and extension activities are occurring throughout North Dakota and Minnesota. The work addresses potato breeding; nutrient management; and disease, insect, and weed pests. The efforts are focused on improving potato production for the North Dakota and Minnesota growers, but also effect production practices throughout the United State and world. Many of the projects are funded by the Northern Plain Potato Growers Association, Minnesota Area II Research and Promotion Council, industry partners, and other funding organizations. We look forward to seeing you at the Northern Plains Potato Grower Association Field Day.
