(Northern Rockies News Service) A farm in Idaho is pioneering a new way to grow the state's most famous crop: potatoes.

The pioneering method is being demonstrated on Ladd Wahlen's fourth-generation farm and will involve using regenerative practices to grow potatoes. Wahlen, who researched regenerative practices in college, said using such methods for potatoes is uncharted territory, but he argued it will ultimately benefit the land.
