Speaking of social media, it is exciting to see The Packer Market grow. Look for more integration of that site with The Packer’s news site in the weeks/months ahead. Check out a series of blog posts about some of my most valuable reporter-related web resources and a discussion about the potato antitrust case.

The potato antitrust case is drawing attention in the consumer media. Check out this ABC coverage here .

One evergreen examination of antitrust issues and agricultural cooperatives, and with mention of the issues of the potato case, can be found online.

 More thoughts on potatoes in a later blog post. Also, I continue to be amazed with the growth of hort production in Peru, and I'll have more facts on that in a later post as well.
