Portage Russet

In November 2022, the SpudPro committee selected the name ‘Portage Russet’ for W13A11229-1rus. The name honors Portage County and has additional significance because ‘portage’ means carrying a boat between two bodies of water. Similarly, Portage Russet is a dual-purpose variety, able to meet the needs of both the fresh and frozen processing markets. FY2 seed is available from the UW Elite Foundation Seed Farm for the 2023 season.
