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

Storage Crop

  • Large sizes (40- through 70-count stocks) are limited; 80- through 100-count sizes are readily available
  • Quality remains great for both varieties
  • Norkotah stocks will wind down throughout this month; Burbanks will be the sole variety for the remainder of the season
  • Daily production schedules have been reduced in order to extend storage supplies
  • Advanced order lead time is highly recommended for order fulfillment
  • Limited Burbank stocks are expected to ship through mid- to late July

New Crop

  • Growers have begun planting this week on the eastern side near Blackfoot (one week later than their normal start date in late April)
  • Norkotah harvesting and packing would normally begin in early to mid-August
