The soil, climate, and irrigation make the Idaho potato different from those grown in other parts of the world (The Idaho Potato Commission, 2017). History Figure 1

The goal of the potato supply chain is to get the potato from the field to the fork with little spoilage. Some potatoes are diverted to food companies such as Ore-Ida to be made into frozen fries and other products (The Idaho Potato Commission, 2016). 65% of Idaho potatoes are shipped by truck, 35% are shipped by train (Potato Harvest, 2016).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
