Potato seed producer Sunrain Varieties LLC has purchased a 1,600-acre farm near the Idaho cities of Victor and Driggs.

Idaho Falls, Idaho-based Sunrain plans to build a storage and grading facility on the property, according to a company news release.

“This acreage will be used primarily for early generation seed production, and we look forward to a great fall harvest,” Aron Derbidge, Sunrain’s business manager, said in the release.

With on-site sorting and sizing at the new facility, Sunrain will be able to offer pre-sized seed lots, Derbidge said.

“Sunrain is continually striving to help our customers save time and money in the planting process, so this addition makes good sense.”
