North Dakota potato production dropped 22% in 2016

Potato production in North Dakota has seen a significant drop since 2015 falling by 22%.

The Agriculture Department says farmers in the state produced 21.6 million hundredweight of potatoes in 2016. A hundredweight is equivalent to a 100-pound bag.

Decreases in planted acres, harvested acres and average yield all contributed to the drop in production last year.

The value of potatoes sold from the 2016 crop totalled $199 million, down 14 percent from 2015.
