First annual Potato Conference

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash;-- Potatoes and farming equipment are scattered all around the Three Rivers Convention Center for the first annual Washington and Oregon Potato Conference.

The Conference marks the first time Washington and Oregon have combined to provide a merged event. Both groups believe the combined efforts will be beneficial to growers in both states and to the Northwest potato industry as a whole.

The Washington board and Oregon representatives agreed to give the effort a three-year run to see if it continues to work.

The Conference lasts until Thursday at 4p.m.
