POTATO SEED LAW SUNSET REVIEW

 

 

The Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA) has begun the mandatory sunset review of the Colorado Potato Seed Act. This process will take several months and will require a great deal of input from all sectors of the potato industry.

Brian Tobias, DORA director, was in the San Luis valley learning about the potato industry and how the Colorado Seed Potato Act has impacted the growers and shippers in the valley. He met with industry, and toured Aspen Produce and the CSU Potato Certification Disease Laboratory as an introduction to the industry.

Thanks to everyone who attended the meeting at CPAC, and especially Doug Gunnels, Dwayne Weyers, Jed Ellithorpe, Dave Warsh, and Andrew Houser.

The Seed Law Advisory committee has asked the CPAC committee to facilitate the exchange of information in this process for Mr. Tobias by conducting an informational survey with potato growers.

You may participate in the survey on-line at this link:
