Idaho potato supplies continue to tighten; prices are climbing. Expect packing delays until new crop, fresh-run Norkotahs become available in early August. Placing orders in advance is recommended to ensure coverage.
Freezing temperatures during the October 2019 harvests have affected the integrity of storage crop Burbanks
Sheds must run more raw product to pack the same number of cartons, reducing already limited supplies
Supplementing Washington Markon First Crop Norkotah Potatoes may be necessary to bridge the gap until new crop, Idaho Norkotahs enter the market
New crop harvesting is set to begin during the week of August 3
