KARLSTAD, Minn. — For Justin Dagen, growing potatoes involves more than production. Dagen, a Karlstad, Minn., seed potato farmer, believes that promoting the crop is as essential to the success of his operation as raising it. Earlier this year, Dagen was named Potato Man of the Year at the national Potato Expo in Orlando, Fla.
The U.S, potato industry enjoyed a lot of success in 2011, including rising consumption and a big win on a controversial proposal that would have limited spuds in school cafeterias, potato boosters say.
U.S. potato growers on balance had a good crop in 2011. Spud farmers in North Dakota and Minnesota weren't so fortunate.
