Opening the Lab
“If you could only see the place that we were in before and what we have now… it’s amazing,” said Jenny Durrin, the Director of the Seed Potato Germplasm Program.
“We’re very excited for this new facility and we think that it is a huge asset for our state, especially for our industry and we’re so excited to see the future results that will come down the road from this,” said Jamey Higham, President & CEO, Idaho Potato Commission.
On March 29th the University of Idaho celebrated the official grand opening of the new Seed Potato Germplasm Laboratory on their campus in Moscow.
“It’s gorgeous for one thing. It’s not only a visually appealing building, it’s very functional, and I think having the people that work here and research here be able to design the facility was a major plus,” said Nick Blanksma, President of the Elmore County Farm Bureau, former Commissioner of Idaho Potato Commission.
