If your organic potatos are being grown near someone who is spraying Round-Up, this paper may be worth knowing about.

" Implications are that if a mother seed crop encounters glyphosate during bulking, injury may not even be noticeable on the foliage or the tubers, however, emergence, vigor, and yield of the crop growing the following year from the daughter tubers could be greatly impacted."

We're doing this again?

Plus, it seems...based on this and other recent posts...that you're going to ignore other people's suggestion that when you post random stuff like this (answers to questions no one asked) that you add some substance to why you're posting it...especially when it's something no one's been asking about, having problems with, giving bad advice about, etc.

Is there a point to this? Seriously, we could all post a dozen+ of these a week.

This is the 2nd abstract-visible-only from a pay-to-view journal you've posted recently. For someone that likes to nit-pick everything in the world presented to're sure taking just reading a simple abstract rather than the entire paper rather seriously.

I know the amount of seed potato producer growing questions around here is off the hook recently and we've been sitting through all these questions lately from Oregon area blackberry growers wondering about their weed control... we haven't.
