UPDATE: IDAHO POTATOES

September 2, 2021

New crop Markon First Crop Norkotah Potato Harvest continues to ramp up. Sheds will be closed on Monday, September 6th in observance of the Labor Day holiday. 

New Crop Norkotahs

  • While size continues to be dominated by 90-count and smaller, supplies of larger potatoes are beginning to increase
  • Potato sheds will not produce orders over the weekend or on Labor Day, Monday, September 6
    • Production will be slow on Tuesday, September 7 as sheds will start the week with minimal inventory
    • Loading delays may occur
  • Markets are expected to begin to ease next week (after the Labor Day holiday)
  • 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
