Canada: rain worries potato growers

Fall weather complicated the harvest of potatoes in Canada, which is not yet over. Indeed, in order to harvest, potatoes must be dry and not too cold. On Prince Edward Island, the provincial agency estimates that $40 to $50 million could be lost if the harvest does not continue before the advent of freezing temperatures.

Beyond financial losses, farmers will be unable to meet customer demand.
