Potato Provincial Convention

Potato Provincial Convention
The Potato Provincial Convention remains a must for its networking opportunities, with exhibitors and scientific posters, and because it offers a variety of presentations on current topics in potato production. But beyond agronomic and economic performances, producers must deal with stress management and human resources management, for example. That's why the organizing committee wanted to integrate the human concern into the programming this year.
