Variety Data Management

Selecting ideal potato varieties would not be possible without powerful data analytics and predictive algorithms. Variety Data Management (VDM), custom-built by Medius Ag, provides both.

Breeders, state associations, private companies and Potatoes USA log on to VDM for 24/7 access to information on specific varieties and their unique attributes.
