At least eight exhibitors based in NPPGA's footprint were among the 160 exhibitors at the POTATO EXPO 2014 trade show last week in San Antonio.  Many local reps from companies based outside our region worked in booths as well.

Susie Thompson, potato breeder from NDSU and counterpart Christian Thill from the University of Minnesota joined Wisconsin's Jeffrey Endelman and Michigan State"s David Douches in the North Central Potato Breeding Team booth.
 
The four universities collaborate on many potato breeding projects.  The origin of this booth was at the World Potato Congress trade show in Idaho in 2006 and has continued every year since at the Seed Seminar/Potato Expo.
 
Other companies from the NPPGA region exhibiting at the show included Jorde Certified Seed, Lockwood-Harriston-Mayo, Minnesota Certified Seed, the North Dakota State Seed Department, Pieper Farms LLC, Tri-Steel Manufacturing and the Williston Area Ag Diversification Group.
 
Over 1,700 people attended this year's POTATO EXPO.  Next year the event moves to the new Rosen Shingle Creek hotel and resort in Orlando, January 7-9, 2015. (From Potato Bytes)
