2012: A STRONG YEAR FOR MOST AG PRODUCERS
|Print | Back|
Potato markets are weak heading into 2013, pressured by increased production. While contract potato prices are providing growers with profitable returns, open potato prices are well below producers’ breakeven positions. Open market growers have opted to store potatoes, anticipating improved prices this spring. Exports and feed uses are expected to provide additional, but limited market support for the rest of the season.
