News Center interviews Porter about potato crop

News Center Maine interviewed Greg Porter, a University of Maine professor of crop ecology and management, about the potato crop this year. Farmers struggled with their harvests over the past two years, which brought record temperatures and drought, and additional challenges posed by COVID-19 last year, according to the report. “With timely rain, I think we are all hoping and expecting we will get a bigger yield,” Porter said.
