New York Potato Promotion 2007
Project Leader: J. Mishanec, NYS IPM
Abstract: I received a NY Ag + Markets FAID grant in 2006. A number of people that would be involved in the project got together and we discussed the best way to accomplish the goal of promoting NY potatoes. First, we felt we needed to gather more culinary information on an expanded list of potato varieties grown in NY. And second, we felt we needed local involvement with chefs throughout NY. We wanted chefs throughout NY to speak for us, the potato industry.
