Due to state and Washington State University coronavirus policy, the 2020 WSU-Othello Potato Field Day, scheduled for June 18, has been cancelled. WSU said seed lot samples entered into the Commercial Seed Lot Trial will be evaluated for disease and other growth compromising factors in early June. The seed lot ratings will be available online and in booklet form via the Washington state Potato Commission after June 18th.
Growers may view their seed lots on the WSU-Othello research farm (1471 W. Cox Rd, Othello) between Monday June 22 and Thursday July 2 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Signs will be posted with the seed lot locations and COVID-specific instructions.
