Strong Spuds: Idaho’s potato crop is looking good despite challenges

With harvest well underway, the Idaho Potato Commission says this year’s crop looks like a winning one, according to a report by RFD-TV. The Commission says even though the weather has been all over the place, producers are hopeful when it comes to the quality of this year’s potatoes.

“The one message that I’m hearing loud and clear from everyone is quality looks very good on our crop this year,” said Jamey Higham, the Idaho Potato Commission’s President. “Input costs are insane, but at the same time we feel like we’ve got a crop that should bring some good prices, and some good returns to our growers this year.”

He adds that as consumers look ahead to the holiday season, strong crop numbers will ensure shoppers enjoy a quality selection of spuds.
