FIELD DAY - COVID-19 has altered the NPPGA Field Day scheduled for August 27th.  As of now, the only event that will be held is the breakfast session at the Hoverson Farm near Larimore. All research presentations will take place following the breakfast at this location.  The afternoon gathering at the Forest River Colony and the evening barbeque at the Oberg Farm have been canceled.  NPPGA will monitor the situation closely and will always make our decisions based on public safety.
The Northern Plains Potato Growers Association (NPPGA) home office is located in East Grand Forks, Minnesota.  The association serves the potato growers and the potato industry in all of North Dakota and northwest Minnesota through funding research and providing legislative, operational and marketing support.  NPPGA is supported by over 200 grower members and has over 250 Potato Associate members. The Northern Plains is the 3rd largest potato growing region in the U.S. and produces potatoes for four distinct markets; frozen processing, fresh market, potato chips and certified seed.  The Red River Valley is the largest red potato producing region in the country.
