The scope of the Utilization Section encompasses activities dealing with harvesting, handling, transportation, storage, and utilization of potatoes through processing and fresh market channels. The primary purpose of the Utilization Section is to promote discussion, understanding of potato utilization problems, and to encourage research and new approaches to solving these problems. This can be accomplished by: Organizing and sponsoring symposia on selected topics, preparing listing of investigators and their current research program objectives, improving the selection and presentation of research papers at the annual meetings, and sponsoring discussion on immediate and future research pertaining to potato utilization. Additionally, the Utilization Section will provide an avenue through which The Potato Association of America membership can communicate with other regional and national organizations interested in the activities encompassed by this section.
