UPDATE: Idaho Potatoes

June 28, 2019

Recent frost events, coupled with unseasonably cold weather, are slowing the maturity of this year’s Idaho potato crop.

  • Most potato growers expect the 2019/2020 crop profile to be comparable to this past season
    • Expect the new crop to be dominated by smaller sizes (80-, 90-, and 100-count stocks)
    • Supplies of 40-, 50-, 60-, and 70-count potatoes will be limited
  • The warming trend that is forecast over the next several weeks will increase size; however, it’s still too early in the growing season to understand the extent of damage caused by the frost
