Seed potato certification is Colorado is voluntary. Colorado certified
seed growers make a commitment to understand and follow the rules and
regulations for Colorado certified seed potatoes with the goal of
producing quality seed for themselves and their customers. Many Colorado
grower operations are managed by the second or third generation of the
same family, testifying to the importance of history and knowledge
needed to produce a consistent high quality product.
Some growers focus only on tissue culture potato plantlet production and greenhouse minituber production. Other growers own their own tissue culture and greenhouse facilities, beginning their seed potato increase progressing through additional generations of production in the field. Other growers specialize in receiving Generation 2 or Generation 3 seed to increase one or two more years. Whichever way, each grower is focused on developing their style of farming, establishing good relationships with other seed growers and commercial growers that are customers.
