AHDB potato supply and demand estimates

Potato Weekly 15 May 2020 - AHDB

Free-buy trade has reportedly levelled out for most of this week. There was an increase in demand for some packing varieties but in the other sectors, trade has remained steady.

Many growers experienced a colder snap earlier in the week, with frost particularly affecting plants in sheltered areas of fields. Irrigation schedules have also begun, with a lack of rainfall becoming a concern.

Lifting of early crops across Southern regions is well underway, with good yields reported. We will begin new-crop price reporting when more supplies become available.
