Foreign material in potatoes includes anything that is not the actual potato tuber. Foreign material can be physical or chemical in nature. Much of this material comes from the field or the activities of people, but foreign material can also come from equipment, storage facilities or handling. This bulletin outlines management practices for reducing the presence of foreign material throughout the potato production and handling system.
