Chris Long, M.S.
Chris leads the Potato Outreach Program, a collaboration between Michigan State University and the Michigan Potato Industry Commission. This program supports Michigan potato growers by conducting on-farm research and demonstration trials that apply to all aspects of potato production. He also speaks at Extension events, fields days, grower meetings, and to commodity groups. Each year, the program conducts over 40 on-farm variety trials in Michigan, participates with cooperating states in national trials, maintains a demonstration storage, and compiles the annual Michigan Potato Research Report. Chris is interested in identifying potato varieties adapted to the Michigan climate that are profitable for producers, resistant to diseases, pests, and biotic and abiotic stresses, and acceptable to consumers.
