Northwest Potato Research Consortium
Cooperative Effort of the Potato Commissions of ID, OR, & WA
The Consortium is a cooperation of the Idaho, Oregon, and Washington State Potato Commissions, fully funded by the Northwest potato growers. The mission of the Consortium is to support the Northwest potato industry by funding and supporting high-quality research aimed at solving problems and advancing the potato enterprise regionally. It will also work toward a comprehensive research results reporting process that aims to get useful information to the growers and industry members who need it. The Northwest Potato Research Consortium has one staff, Andy Jensen, as Manager, who is essentially a shared employee of the three potato commissions. He is directed by a Consortium board of nine members, three persons representing each commission.
