USDA: South Korean ban lifted on Idaho potatoes

By  | 

(KMVT/KSVT) After a five-year ban South Korea’s government said it will take Idaho potatoes again.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced the reversal last month.

Originally the ban was because of "technical concerns," the USDA said.

Now the South Korean government is putting out new guidelines. The guidelines should be released to growers sometime this month.

Idaho is one of three states from which South Korea will accept potatoes. They will also allow them from Oregon and Washington.
