7/7/2017


US potato-grower cooperatives in the early 2000?s deployed drones and scanned satellite images as they colluded to reduce the amount of potatoes grown across the country in an effort to increase their profits, according to a report by California State University, Northridge business law professor Melanie Stallings Williams. ?If you had a potato in the last decade or so, then you paid significantly more because of widespread collusion in the potato industry,? Williams said.
