As well as conducting annual Potato Variety Trials, the Vegetable Program researches the agronomy, fertility, and pest and disease management practices of potatoes, aimed at improving potato production for prairie producers.

The latest potato variety trials and research is available online in the Vegetable Cultivar and Cultural Trials.
