Prince Edward Island potato farmers and other industry members are invited to attend the upcoming United Potato Growers of Canada seminars on Tuesday, Jan. 13 at the Delta Prince Edward Hotel and Wednesday, Jan 14 at Credit Union Place in Summerside.

The day-long seminars will provide excellent information.
- what’s happening in agriculture worldwide
- financial/risk analysis for potato growers
- how fiancial/risk analysis can be impacted by the decisions made on individual farms and as a province or country
- the U.S. approach to managing the potato market (as growers working together)
- what’s been happening on the Canadian side of the border in terms of better understanding potato market dynamics
- the latest developments in processing contract negotiations in North America.

The association says top-notch speakers from across North America will deliver this information, and, they say, the event will be extremely valuable as producers consider their plans for 2009.
