November 29, 2018

Cold weather is expected in Eastern Idaho next week. Temperatures must be 18 degrees or higher to haul potatoes from cellars to packing sheds. These conditions may affect the number of potatoes packed and delay loading times.

  • Internal black spots and bruising can occur when raw product is hauled below 18 degrees
  • Markon suppliers utilize on-site storage to minimize loading delays and defects such as internal black spots and bruising
  • Below is a weather forecast (in degrees Fahrenheit) for the next week
