Our lives are about to change! We are entering a dynamic period of accelerated population growth and intensifying demand for a finite set of global resources. Tremendous political stress are developing due to competition for oil, water, land and other limited elements of our natural environment.
Real Potatoes has realized the impact these stresses will have on our lives and we have been working with plant breeders to identify potato varieties that in some measure responsibly address the need to supply volumes of good wholesome food while having a minimal impact on our shared natural resources of fresh air, fertile soil and clear water.
eco-spuds® represent potato varieties selected to have in some measure reduced impact on our environment. Positive environmental characteristics derived via traditional plant breeding techniques represent the first phase in our process of identifying minimal environmental impact potato varieties, in short form eco-spuds®.
