Cari Schmitz Carley is a scientist who researches potatoes at the University of Minnesota. In her work, she breeds potatoes to develop different varieties for Minnesota growers. She does that by collecting pollen and cross-pollinating the potatoes. This helps her develop new varieties that can have higher yields and better processing qualities. They are also more resistant to fungal, bacterial, and insect problems.
