UMaine Experts in Article on Potato Harvest

A Maine Today Media story about how a lack of rain could stunt this year’s upcoming potato harvest includes interviews with Steven Johnson, a crop specialist at the University of Maine Cooperative Extension, and Gregory Porter, a professor of crop management. Johnson said the prized Russet Burbank potatoes could die without enough water and those that survive produce smaller potatoes. Porter said the lack of rain will produce good quality potatoes but that won’t offset low yields and small sizes.
