The U.S. potato industry is an American agriculture export success story. Growing from $1.1 billion to $1.7 billion (54%) in exports over the past decade, one in every five rows of U.S. potatoes is now destined for foreign consumers. These tremendous gains are the product of careful trade negotiations and enforcement actions over many decades and the commitment of time and resources of the industry. This podcast brings together some of those who have been leading the way in our efforts to increase access to foreign markets, thereby improving the health and prosperity of the entire U.S. potato industry.
