Healthy crops start with healthy seeds, and potatoes are no exception. This webinar features Rue Genger from University of Wisconsin-Madison who discusses 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. You’ll also learn about true potato seed, potato breeding, and how true seed is developing as a possible alternative to seed potatoes.
Rue Genger, from the Department of Horticulture at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, 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 OSA, North Circle Seeds, and North Central SARE.
