The Consortium is a cooperation of the Idaho, Oregon, and Washington State Potato Commissions, fully funded by the Northwest potato growers.
Resources: Insect Trapping Guides, Pests, Diseases, Beneficial Info, Pest Management Options, Useful Websites, & More
Beneficial Organisms: Insects, Wasps, Flies, Spiders, & Other Insects. More information about beneficial organisms for substantial potato yields.

In February 2012 the state potato commissions in Washington, Idaho, and Oregon officially launched a new cooperative effort in research. The aim of this initiative is to increase cooperation and efficiency of the research programs funded by the three potato commissions that total about $1.5 million annually. It will also work toward comprehensive research results reporting process that aims to get useful information to the growers and industry members who need it. This website is a big part of that effort. Research results, integrated pest management guidance, and production information of many kinds will be presented here. For feedback or suggestions on this site, please contact Andy Jensen, Manager of the Consortium.Read More
