UPDATE: Idaho Potatoes

August 22, 2019

Markon First Crop (MFC) Norkotah Potatoes are available in Idaho.

New Crop Norkotahs

  • Prices will remain elevated through early September
  • Size is dominated by 80- through 100-count potatoes; 40- through 70-count and No. 2 supplies are limited
  • Minor skinning, excess moisture, and cooler mold may be observed in fresh-run potatoes; condensation develops on potatoes when they are transferred from warm fields to refrigerated trucks 
  • Store potatoes at 40 to 50 degrees F/4.4 to 10 degrees C; adequate air flow is critical
