November 17, 2022

Extremely low temperatures persist in Eastern and Southern Idaho. Suppliers will load on limited production schedules around the Thanksgiving holiday.

  • Temperatures need to be 18 F° or higher for several hours to haul potatoes from cellars to packing sheds in order to avoid freezing raw product
  • Many suppliers are electing to limit production on select days next week in observance of the holiday, helping the continued effort to extend potato volume
  • Reduced production and delayed loading are expected through next week
  • Advanced order lead time is highly recommended for order fulfillment; orders loading through Saturday, November 26 should be submitted by end of day tomorrow
