Idaho’s potato harvest is now complete; overall demand is moderate. Expect markets to increase over the next few weeks.

  • The harvest is now complete, so growers can control supply levels and hold back shipments to increase prices
  • Markon First Crop (MFC) Norkotah Potatoes are shipping out of storage
  • MFC Burbank Potatoes are in storage sheds until the sweat process is complete
    • Burbank supplies will undergo the sweat process to shed excess moisture after harvest
    • The process lasts approximately three to four weeks or until the outer skin is cured sufficiently
    • After the sweat process is complete, skins will have a smooth, net-like appearance
  • Limited MFC Burbank Potatoes will begin shipping from storage in early November
