Media Report on New Potato Varieties Developed by Maine Potato Board, UMaine

WABI (Channel 5) and The Maine Edge reported on a recent announcement by the Maine Potato Board introducing two varieties of potatoes developed by the board in partnership with the University of Maine. The new varieties — the Easton and the Sebec — were developed over the past several growing seasons and are targeted for the french fry and potato chip industries, although both can be used for fresh market consumption.
