About the Presenters
Dr. Dave Douches is a professor in Crop and Soil Sciences at Michigan State University. He leads a breeding program that focuses on developing varieties for the potato industry that have improved processing quality and disease and insect resistance.
Joe Coombs has been working with the Michigan State University potato breeding program since 1996 as an assistant breeder focused on the program’s breeding and statistical analysis.
