UPDATE: IDAHO POTATOES

August 19, 2021

Field-run MFC Norkotah Potatoes are now shipping. Rain in Eastern Idaho will reduce yields today and tomorrow.

New Crop Norkotahs

  • Early season size is dominated by 90-count and smaller potatoes; expect limited quantities of 70-count and larger supplies through August
  • Substituting sizes may be necessary to meet scheduled shipping dates
  • Markets are expected to remain elevated for the next 14 days
  • Minor skinning and excess moisture will be observed in fresh-run potatoes
    • Potatoes release moisture as they cool, causing a white surface mold that is easily brushed off
    • The white mold dissipates as the potatoes dry
