New crop, fresh-run MFC Norkotah Potatoes are available in Idaho and Washington. Expect the market to ease for the next few weeks.
New Crop Potatoes
- Idaho: early pack-outs are dominated by 80- to 100-count sizes
- Washington: early season volume is dominated by 50- to 70-count potatoes
- Limited quantities are now being gathered
- Early harvests are inadequate in size
- U.S. No. 2 production will be extremely limited, as potatoes that would normally meet No. 1 grade are being packed to meet demand for No. 2 grade orders
- No. 2 supplies will increase once potatoes are shipped out of storage
- Pricing will remain firm until that time
- Colorado and Wisconsin harvests will begin in September
