Oregon State University's Hermiston Agricultural Research and Extension Center is hosting their first virtual live potato research update provided by university scientists from 6–8 p.m. on Wednesday, June 17.
HAREC's interim director Clive Kaiser will give an opening update on the station. Scientists Sagar Sathuvali, Silvia Rondon, Ken Frost and Ray Quin will discuss the station's potato breeding program, plant pathology program and agronomy program, with data and information on potato nutrient management and production. Each session is approximately 15 minutes, followed by a question and answer period at the end.
The research center focuses on agricultural and horticultural productions, plant breeding, nutrition and more. The virtual update is in place of field days HAREC usually hosts this time of year.
