Spring 2022 Special Edition

In this special digital only edition of our spring 2022 issue, we take a look back at the Canadian Spud Congress. Recordings of every session, along with a detailed story, are included in this issue. The showcase videos from Farm Credit Canada and Nose Knows Scouting are also there for viewing.

We also have our regular spring issue content including a cross country pest and disease outlook for the 2022 growing season and an overview of what new potato varieties are available this year. Eugenia Banks takes a closer look at the impact of soil moisture on potato yield and quality in her Tater Tales column. And we have our first annual 10 most innovative products awards in this issue.
