Extremely low temperatures are forecast in Eastern Idaho this week. Expect reduced production and delayed loading.
- Temperatures need to be 18F° or higher for five to seven hours to haul potatoes from cellars to packing sheds
- If low temperatures persist, packing hours may be reduced (from eight to four hours)
- Suppliers do not ship potatoes to packing sheds when temperatures are below 18F° to avoid freezing raw product
- Loading delays are likely due to short production windows
