Potato research farm to be moved

The Northern Plains Potato Growers Association says its irrigated potato research farm in central North Dakota will be moved to the eastern part of the state. Association president Chuck Gunnerson said the research farm near Tappen was too far to travel for researchers from the Red River Valley. Gunnerson said the research farm will be located next to a Hutterite colony near Fordville. The association said it’s selling the Tappen farm and will lease acres for the research farm from the Hutterite colony.
