Potato Progress

Northwest Potato Research Consortium
Cooperative Effort of the Potato Commissions of ID, OR, & WA

Research & Extension for the Potato Industry of Idaho, Oregon, & Washington

Begun in 2001 as a research and extension communication tool for the Washington State potato industry, since 2012 Potato Progress has broadened to formally serve the potato industry of the Northwest.

Examples of topics covered include:

  1. Timely management recommendations such as late-season disease management, covered in Volume 17, Number 13.
  2. Reviews of existing knowledge and recent research, with management recommendations, such as Volume 7 Number 13, which covered tuberworm.
  3. Detailed reports on Commission- or Consortium funded research, such as physiological studies of crop growth, development, and harvested crop quality, an example being Volume 11 Number 8.

All members of the potato industry in the Northwest are invited to receive Potato Progress.

About The Northwest Potato Research Consortium

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 Raina Spence, Manager of the Consortium.
