Testimonials


Here are what a few of our industry partners are saying about us.
We’re confident we can make a believer out of you too!

[Medius.Re] developed by Medius is the best money the potato industry has ever spent. We have greatly improved the way we manage our data from our potato variety development programs. [Medius.Re] has saved us money since it helps us identify underperforming varieties from our research trials sooner, and helps us find the shining stars quicker.

Executive Director, Washington State Potato Commission
Steering Committee Member, National Fry Processor Trials

One thing I really appreciate about the potato variety management database is Brad Halladay’s responsiveness to incorporate new features as the need arises. Brad has worked as a true partner with the US potato breeding community.

Walter DeJong
Associate Professor, Cornell University
Potato Breeder

...I would have to say that these go / no go decisions on varieties, that used to be pretty subjective, have become noticeably more data driven, making decisions more objective and bringing better consensus throughout the trial community, from breeders all the way through to processors. The benefit is obvious to the whole community, in that our programs are more productive and “misses” that used to languish in the system for a few trial years have been greatly reduced, while the truly promising varieties are getting better attention and seeing increased momentum.

Gene Herr
Ag Procurement Manager and Herr Foundation President, Herr Foods
Participant, National Chip Program

I started using [Medius.Re] over four years ago when I first started managing national potato variety trials. It revolutionized the way the industry managed and analyzed variety development data that spanned years and growing areas. During our annual collaborative variety selection meetings, we saved literally hundreds of participant hours of data labor in just a couple days. What had inherently been a subjective process relying on spreadsheets and debate became an objective exercise in decision making. I am such a believer in the technology that I joined the Medius Ag team when given the opportunity. I think that by adopting this technology, other agricultural sectors can experience similar benefits.
