South Korea Reopens

In December 2017, the government of South Korea reopened its market to table-stock imports from the U.S.’ Pacific Northwest (PNW) states, after TASC-funded research resolved technical issues that had closed the market in July 2012. Potatoes USA administered the two research projects, which focused on zebra chip disease and spanned the years 2013-2018. The result is that beginning with the 2018 fresh crop, the states of Idaho, Oregon and Washington can now export U.S. table-stock potatoes to South Korea after being banned for the past five and a half years.
