Healthy Grown Potatoes of Wisconsin

Sid : June 22, 2011 5:15 am : Recent

One of the things the State of Wisconsin is known for is its Healthy Grown potatoes. The term Healthy Grown refers to the farmers’ system of reducing the use of pesticides in growing their potatoes.

This concept began in the mid-1990s and has been implemented in large scale. This practice has offered a common ground for health-conscious consumers, potato farmers and environmentalists.

Wisconsin’s program for growing healthy potatoes was developed through the collaboration of the state’s association of potato growers, the state’s University and lastly, the World Wildlife Fund. This collaboration has worked successfully for 10 years and is still continuing its efforts to implement the program.

One of the significant achievements of the program is the reduction of the overall toxicity of crop protectants by 37% only three years after the program’s implementation. This has been given worldwide recognition by the United States’ Department of Agriculture and thus ranked very high.
