Sufficient supplies of Markon First Crop (MFC) Idaho Burbank and Norkotah Potatoes are available.

Storage Crop

  • Size is currently dominated by 80- through 100-count supplies; larger sizes (40- through 70-count stocks) are limited
  • Quality is excellent for both varieties; pack-outs favor No. 1 quality, with limited No. 2 availability
  • Norkotahs are expected to ship through late May
  • After that, Burbanks will be the sole variety for the rest of the season
  • Currently stocks are expected to remain available through mid- to late July

New Crop

  • New crop planting typically gets underway in mid-April
  • Snow could delay plantings in some regions
  • Growers hope to see spring-like weather in April in order to plant the crop by May
  • Norkotah harvesting and packing would normally begin early to mid-August
