Potato research pact between North Dakota State University and RDO still going strong

A research alliance between North Dakota State University plant pathologists and the R.D. Offutt Farms of Fargo has worked for 25 years, helping to solve potato disease issues worldwide. The partnership between offers access to current production problems that research can help solve and helps test tools for identifying and counteracting disease pests.

NDSU associate professor Julie Pasche leads the research group as the Neil C. Gudmestad Endowed chair of potato pathology. Pasche has held the position for about two years but has been at NDSU for 25 years.

The RDO partnership may account for about 15% to 20% of all of the research her potato plant pathology team conducts and hosts research funded by others. The alliance helps sort out what solutions are able to be scaled up economically to solve problems.
