Webinar on Organic Seed Potato Production

This webinar by Rue Genger was recorded on April 15, 2020. Healthy crops start with healthy seeds, and potatoes are no exception. Join us to learn how seed potato crops are kept healthy through careful inspection and testing, what it means for seed potatoes to be “certified”, and where organic certification fits into this picture. We’ll also talk about true potato seed, potato breeding, and how true seed is developing as a possible alternative to seed potatoes. Rue Genger has been working with organic growers for the past 13 years to trial potato varieties and seed potato production on-farm. This webinar is part of a collaboration between the Organic Seed Alliance, North Circle Seeds and North Central SARE.
