    Mercer Canyon of Prosser, Washington, and Walker Brothers Farms of Malin, Oregon were presented with the prestigious 2010 Environmental Stewardship Award at the 2011 NPC Annual Meeting.

    The award is a component of the Pesticide Environmental Stewardship Program, a partnership between the National Potato Council and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, to protect the environment and promote the safe and effective use of pesticides.

    Mercer Canyon and Walker Brothers Farms were selected based on their on-farm pesticide risk reduction practices, use of Integrated Pest Management practices, use of biological control or alternative pest control methods, water and habitat protection, and resistance management practices-all of which were accomplished without any compromise of yield or quality.
