Potato USA’s seed export program continued to tap new opportunities for U.S. seed potato exports last year, driving an estimated $3.8 million and 4,624 metric tons in sales to all target markets. Seed variety trials in the new markets of Guatemala, Morocco, Myanmar and SubSahara Africa’s Senegal identified potential, with inaugural programs sparking commercial sales in two of them by year-end. Besides variety trials, ongoing market access work, seed tours, reverse trade missions and the International Seed Symposium fostered relationships and enhanced understanding of U.S. seed potatoes.
