UPDATE: IDAHO POTATOES

March 10, 2022

Markon First Crop (MFC) Idaho Burbank Potatoes are available. Storage crop MFC Norkotah Potatoes are expected to be depleted by mid-April.  

Storage Crop

  • Quality is good: pressure bruising and hollow heart will be seen sporadically in remaining storage stocks
  • Size profile is currently dominated by large sizes (40- to 50-count supplies); small-size potatoes (70- to 90-count stocks) are tighter
  • Prices will remain relatively steady over the next few weeks, but will begin to inch up once Norkotahs are depleted

2022-23 Season

  • 2022/2023 new crop potato planting will begin in April
  • New crop Norkotah harvesting is expected to start in late July
