Foundation Seed Program

Due to budget constraints and changes in overall potato program operations, the Oregon Foundation Potato Seed Program will no longer be producing certified minitubers or tissue culture plantlets. 

The University of Idaho Potato Tissue Culture Lab will take over these responsibilities for potato growers in the region. The Idaho Lab has many years of experience in producing high quality potato planting stocks.  The Lab has Tri-state released varieties and many commercial varieties available to order.  A list of available materials is linked below.  The same licensing and MTA requirements that have been in effect for Oregon will be in place for material ordered from Idaho.
