Spud Smart is Canada’s national media outlet dedicated to delivering timely information to the Canadian potato industry, from seed to processing to export. As the voice of potato growers, processors, industry suppliers and policymakers from coast to coast, Spud Smart focuses on news and issues that matter most to the industry. Things like pest and disease control, gene silencing and other innovative breeding techniques, sustainability, sensible business techniques and promoting the health benefits of potatoes are of vital interest to growers, and Spud Smart editor Mark Halsall and the rest of the Spud Smart team are proud to provide a national forum for these issues.
For years, the Spud Smart brand has been providing industry stakeholders with relevant, reliable information that helps invigorate innovation in the potato sector. Our long-standing partnerships with provincial and national industry associations ensure that every potato grower in Canada receives the printed edition of Spud Smart. Our numerous digital platforms, which include spudsmart.com, Spudcast and other e-newsletters, and the Spud Smart social media channels, offer even more content and insights into potato production nationally and abroad.
