Potato Growing Guide

Announcement regarding Seed Potatoes

MSU Extension in Valley County is pleased to announce that three local businesses are taking on the Montana Certified Seed Potato sales for us. You will be able to get the same beautiful potatoes that we have offered over the last eight years at three locations in Valley County. Markles Hardware Inc, Pege Sue's Posy's, and the new greenhouse - Prairie House Gardens will all be offering Montana certified seed potatoes.

We started the program to raise awareness of the importance of growing Montana certified seed potatoes to keep industry destroying diseases and pests out of Montana. The project has exceeded all our expectations. We would like to thank all the gardeners and potato growers that have supported this program and our Montana seed potato industry.

If you have any questions about growing potatoes, or any other vegetable or crop, please visit our office (406-228-6241 or [email protected]) or contact us here. We offer a wide variety of educational programming through MSU Extension.
