The outgoing President of the National Potato Council is Dan Lake, Ronan, Montana. I visited with him during Potato Expo to learn what the big issues were in 2015 for the organization.
Dan says there were four main issues. One is pollinator health and he says farmers are using technology now that is designed to keep bee health in mind. Another is truck weight reform, allowing trucks to haul larger loads. Funding for research is also a big effort. Getting country of origin labeling repealed was another. Listen to my interview with Dan to hear more about each of these issues.
