If you’re a potato grower, we want to meet you and understand how we can help with your operation.”

“UPGA is happy to welcome Vive Crop Protection as a Potato Partner,” states Mark Klompien, President and CEO of United Potato Growers of America.  “UPGA’s Potato Partner Program supports offerings of innovative and productivity-enhancing products to our potato grower members, and we look forward to working with Vive toward that end.”
