Potato growers from across the country are in Washington D.C. to set policy priorities and discuss key issues like ag labor reform, trade, nutrition and the upcoming farm bill. “This year, we’ve combined the fly-in with our annual meeting of the National Potato Council,” said Kam Quarles, CEO, National Potato Council. “The great part about that is we can see our new leadership for the year and have the committees sit down with their members, set policy and go to Capitol Hill.” This in-person meeting is happening during a busy time in Washington D.C., including tomorrow’s State of the Union Address. A handful of local growers will be attending. Coverage is presented by the National Potato Council.
