2007 potato harvest up but down

The fall 2007 potato harvest in Malheur County may be high in quality but represents a decline in quantity from the boom years of the 1970s, Lynne Jensen or the Oregon State University Extension told The Argus Observer.

Jensen said local farmers will harvest about 5,000 acres of potatoes down from 15,000 to 20,000 in the 1970s.
