Guatemala 1st Commercial Sales of Seed

In March 2017, a commercial shipment of U.S. seed potatoes was sold in Guatemala for the first time in more than 70 years. Although small, the sale -- comprising $5,700 worth of fresh market varieties – is hoped to mark the beginning of Guatemala’s status as a new commercial market for U.S. seed potato growers.
