Spud Smart Webinar: Potato Storage

Storage losses have declined substantially over the years as storage facilities and storage technologies like ventilation systems and temperature sensors improve. Basic storage management recommendations themselves, however, have remained relatively unchanged for many years.

On, Wednesday, November 29 at 1 p.m. Eastern, we will hear from Dr. Robert Coffin, potato researcher at Potato Consulting Services Inc., Prince Edward Island, and Todd Forbush, an engineering/storage specialist with Techmark, Lansing, Michigan, who will discuss all you need to know about potato storage, including:

  • Airflow and ventilation
