Technical Abstract: Selecting a potato variety to grow and sell has become more complex in recent years. Many characteristics must be considered when choosing a variety. Information provided in this chapter includes agronomic characteristics, conformity to market specifications that will result in price incentives, and resistances to common pests and diseases. Defining these characteristics is critical so than an informed decision can be made regarding the cost-effectiveness of producing a variety.
