The market continues to strengthen; expect elevated prices to persist over the next several weeks.

  • Active demand from potato processors is affecting markets
  • Strong retail demand for Thanksgiving holiday persists
  • Growers estimate 7-11% fewer acres were planted in most regions this year due to water restrictions and high input costs
  • Most growers harvested two weeks later than normal due to a cold, wet spring, further delaying the growing cycle at the start of the plant development
  • Growers have gained control of supply levels and are holding back raw product to push prices upward and extend supply
  • Burbank stocks are extremely limited; most suppliers have postponed Burbank production until early January to extend supply throughout the season
  • Expect tight supplies on all counts and sizes
