Potatoes are the number one fresh vegetable in the United States and the fourth most grown crop in the world. About one third of US potatoes are consumed fresh, while approximately sixty percent are destined for processing. To supply the market with fresh potatoes year-round, producers must store the crop for extended periods. It is vital to prevent diseases and degradation of tubers during the storage period to ensure potatoes reach their final market with the highest quality possible.
