Significant drop in Canadian potato production

Canadian potato production will decline this year, possibly by six percent or more, reports Robert Arnason for The Western Producer. A hot and dry summer, especially in Ontario, Quebec and the Maritimes, cut into potato yields across the country.

Last year, Canadian farmers produced 106.4 million hundredweight of potatoes. The 2020 crop could be around 100 million cwt.
