Rankin, J. O. (1919). Marketing Nebraska Potatoes (University of Nebraska Agricultural Experiment Station Circular No. 9)
Marketing Nebraska potatoes is no less important than raising them. It is often much more difficult, yet the pay for this service is grudgingly given. Failure to secure a good market causes more men to hesitate to enter or stay in the potato business than field risks. The full usefulness of the potato has not been secured until it is on the consumer's table. Every process necessary to get it there is a useful and productive process and the grower is no less productively engaged when working to find a market or to get these perishable wares into it than when he is planting the seed or cultivating the crop.
