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
