Potato research lab shares milestones at open house

Benoit Bizimungu spends about 12 years working on a single type of potato, trying to develop a more resilient crop that requires less fertilizer or chemical.

The research scientist had a chance to share his work with the public Saturday, Aug. 19, when his workplace, the Fredericton Research and Development Centre, opened its laboratory doors to the public.

More than 300 people stopped by the open house to get a peek into the federal facility, which primarily focuses on researching potatoes.
