Markon First Crop (MFC) Idaho Burbank and Norkotah Potatoes are readily available.

Storage Crop

  • Size is currently dominated by 80- through 100-count supplies; larger sizes (40- through 70-count stocks) are sufficient
  • Quality is great for both varieties
  • Norkotahs will remain available through late April; after that, Burbanks will be the sole variety on the market for the rest of the season
  • Prices will remain relatively steady over the next several weeks, but will begin to inch up once Norkotah supplies begin to wind down

2023-24 New Crop Season

  • New crop planting will begin in mid-April
  • Fresh-run Norkotah harvesting is expected to start at the end of July
