Winter 2024 Issue

In the winter 2024 edition of Spud Smart, we take a closer look at how potatoes are marketed in the grocery store, specifically looking into why fresh potatoes marketed by category rather than sold by variety.  We also take a deep dive into a major irrigation expansion project in Saskatchewan — the Lake Diefenbaker Irrigation Projects expansion — and how this project will create half a million irrigable acres, which should lead to significantly more potato production in the region.

This issue also includes our annual check in with potato breeders and seed companies across the country to see what’s new and notable in varieties available for the upcoming growing season.
