Extremely low temperatures are forecast in Eastern and Southern Idaho for this week and next week.

  • Temperatures need to be 18°F or higher for five to seven hours to haul potatoes from cellars to packing sheds
  • Suppliers do not haul potatoes to packing sheds when temperatures are below 18°F to avoid freezing raw product
  • Expect reduced production and delayed loading; advanced order lead time is highly recommended for order fulfillment
  • Many suppliers will utilize onsite storage to cover orders; sizing may be limited
  • Expect prices to push upward through the Christmas holiday
