Canada: Prince Edward Island’s 2020 potato acreage dependent on contracts, but storability is a concern

Just before the COVID-19 pandemic brought physical meetings to a standstill, the board of directors of United Potato Growers of Canada held a face-to-face meeting in Ottawa to review potato stocks and discuss the market situation across the country.

General Manager Kevin MacIsaac noted stocks nationally were down 1.9 per cent or one million hundredweight over the three-year average as of March 1. However, the former chair of the PEI Potato Board noted that Prince Edward Island holdings were up 3.9 per cent.
