On-Farm Variety Trials
The goals of our on-farm variety trials are:
- Identify promising lines for further testing and evaluation
- Conduct large scale commercial agronomic and processing trials through multi-acre block plantings
- Use trial data to encourage the commercialization of new varieties in Michigan
We share our results with growers, breeders, and processors across the country to aid in the development of new varieties.
In 2017, we conducted 41 on-farm potato variety trials with 16 growers in 12 counties.
