A showcase of innovative new potato equipment will include:
- The New 6M 1500mm Potato Washer by HJV Engineering

- The New 1100C Rogator From Agco
Other equipment from Spudnik, Doyle Lenco and Grimme will also be on display. The Field Day will have also a showcase of new potato varieties, never grown in Ontario before. and will be a chance to discuss potato-related matters in a friendly atmosphere.
This year, members of the Canadian Private Potato Breeders Network (CPPPBN) will attend the Field Day. It will be an opportunity for growers to talk to breeders about what they would like to see in new potato varieties, traits like scab resistance.
Included is a barbecue at 5:30 p.m., sponsored by Syngenta.
