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

Storage Crop

  • Large sizes (40- through 50-count stocks) continue to tighten; 90- through 100-count sizes are readily available
  • Quality remains great for both varieties; pack-outs favor No. 1 quality, with limited No. 2 availability
  • Prices are expected to climb as Norkotah stocks wind down through May; Burbanks will be the sole variety for the rest of the season
  • Suppliers continue to reduce production schedules to avoid a supply gap between this crop and next year’s season (2023-24)
  • Advanced lead time is highly recommended for order fulfillment
  • Limited Burbank stocks are expected to ship through mid- to late July
