ePA TOURS POTATO FIELDS
NPC led a delegation of 12 U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) staff on a tour of Minnesota potato fields. The annual field event gives EPA staff the opportunity to see potato production, discuss pesticide utilization, and interact with farmers outside the confines of Washington, D.C. Growers provide employees at EPA an in-depth look at their pesticide stewardship practices and the process of bringing potatoes from field to table.
