US: Wisconsin seeing one of its best potato crops ever

“This is one of the best crops ever,” Tamas Houlihan was recently told by a potato grower-member of the Wisconsin Potato & Vegetable Growers Association.  “He told me it was the best crop he’d ever seen. It is a beautiful crop. There are no problems in any aspect.” Houlihan, executive director of the Antigo-based association, said Wisconsin “yields are very good. The quality is excellent. Our yields could average 440 to 460 hundredweight per acre. For a statewide average, that is pretty high.” As a reference point, he said Wisconsin averaged between 410 and 420 per acre last year, “and that was a good year.” The total national potato crop will be “a little smaller in overall hundredweight” vs. 2014, so Houlihan expects strong prices as shipments pick up this fall, running into 2016.
