Abstract
A China has not permitted the importation of USA seed potatoes in over 19 years and signed a new Potato Protocol in 2003. B We must obtain a Chinese Provincial Variety Evaluation to comply with the current China Seed Law. C We have 10 USA potato varieties under a preliminary evaluation by Chinese Scientists in China's Region I in NE China. China and USA signed a new POTATO PROTOCOL in 2003 to permit the importation of Certified Seed-Potatoes. A This project evaluates several USA potato varieties at both the Provincial and National level as required by current China Seed Law. B A survey of both seed-potato pricing and government management practices in China's Region I will determine where our USA certified seed-potatoes are competitively priced.
