On-Farm Variety Trials
The goals of our on-farm variety trials are to:
- 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. If you would like to receive our variety trial reports via email, please contact us.
In 2017, we conducted 41 on-farm potato variety trials with 16 growers in 12 counties.
