Scientists develop nutrient-rich purple potato
Purple potatoes might not be the first thing that comes to mind when trying to increase vitamin, mineral and antioxidant intake. However, a group of researchers from Colorado State University have recently developed potato varieties that satisfy these nutritional needs and could act as a preventive measure to several diseases. According to the research team, "There are different colored potatoes such as red, purple, yellow and white with distinctive skin and flesh color. Among them, purple and red potatoes are high in antioxidants." Antioxidants found in the newly developed potatoes play a critical role in the prevention of several pathological conditions, including cancer, heart disease and atherosclerosis. Researchers describe the newly developed potatoes as comparable to superfoods like blueberries and pomegranates....Learn more »
Maine Potato Board unveils new variety
The past week the 6th Annual Maine Harvest Festival rolled into the Cross Center in Bangor. At the center of it all was a new variety of potato being unveiled by the Maine Potato Board. "It's not quite as dry as a normal Russet Burbank you'd find in the stores, and it's got some unique flavor to it. We think it's going to be really well received by the consumers" said Dan Flannery, the Executive Director of the MPB. He's talking about the Caribou Russet. It's called a dual purpose potato. Meaning it will be available for purchase and viable in the processing market. "You may be able to go to the store and buy a bag to take home and hopefully in the very near future may be able to have it in your french fries" said Flannery....Learn more »
Search warrants for pale cyst nematodes ordered at southeast Idaho potato farms

The Post Register reports (http://bit.ly/2g7d6ry) that U.S. Magistrate Judge Candy Dale on Friday denied a motion by farmers seeking to delay the testing until a related lawsuit is settled. Some sampling was already carried out before Dale's ruling, and additional soil samples are expected to be taken this week at the farms in Bingham County. "We've done what we could," said Bill Myers, a Boise attorney representing the farmers, which include Mickelsen Farms, CVRH Farm and several others. "The court's allowed those search warrants to go forward." The discovery of the pale cyst nematode in Bingham and Bonneville counties in 2006 was the first detection of the pest in the United States, and several countries temporarily stopped shipment of Idaho potatoes. Japan still doesn't allow them....Learn more »
