Good yields but high costs for Argentine potatoes

Before the imminent start of the new potato harvest in the southeast of Buenos Aires, engineers Sergio Costantino (director of Argenpapa) and Ricardo Bergonzi (private advisor) analyzed the profitability of this crop, which hasn’t yielded positive figures for farmers during the last two campaigns.

According to them, “in this campaign, there will be average yields that can significantly exceed those of recent years. An oversupply and high costs can lead to another year of bankruptcy for potato producers, just like the previous two years.”

They also said that the current numbers were not very encouraging, as potato prices in the markets fell by more than 30% in the last week.
