According to an article published by Blue Book Services, one thing is usually consistent in an election year in the US. Whatever party loses, some voters threaten to move to Canada for the next four years. If they actually followed through on the threat, one thing is for sure, they would have plenty of potatoes to keep them well fed.
The Blue Book article reads that while Idaho remains the potato behemoth, Canada has put a stake in the ground when it comes to exporting potatoes into the US. Blue Book says Canada trailed Minnesota and Oregon in terms of volume in 2019. However, in 2020 it has surged to the No. 4 spot by bringing in nearly 450 million more pounds of product.
Blue Book has teamed with Agtools Inc., the data analytic service for the produce industry, to look at what can be expected next year.
