Sunrain Varieties LLC announces increased capacity

Sunrain Varieties LLC, known for its innovation, expertise and dedication to fresh potato seed development, has just completed a series of capital improvements in its Idaho Falls-based facilities.

Two additional greenhouses were added to the Idaho Falls complex, in addition to a 25,000-hundredweight storage unit, which will enable Sunrain to increase mini tuber production by nearly 40 percent. Additional office space and on-site testing equipment were also added during the upgrade. The on-site test farm was upgraded by adding a state-of-the-art irrigation system to the 140-acre plot.

The Idaho Falls facility is the crown jewel in a nationwide trial program that now spans 12 different states. By growing their own tissue cultures, plantlets and mini tubers in highly controlled environments, the team of field agronomists can be certain that they are bringing the very best product to market.

Sunrain will be holding a new product showcase and open house Aug 13. Contact Rainey Carraballo for more information or to schedule a facility tour.
