POTATO INDUSTRY MAKING PROGRESS ON LARGE CROP
|Print | Back|
Potato industry leaders say new USDA numbers show they're making a modest dent in a large 2012 crop supply that's depressed fresh prices.
As large as the surplus may be, Dan Hargraves, executive director of the Southern Idaho Potato Cooperative, said it represents progress from the original crop size, which was 14 million cwt greater than the prior year.
"There's been progress on dealing with the excess, and we need to continue to stay the course," Hargraves said.
