Frost pushes UK potato season back by 1-2 weeks

AHDB has released its weekly update for potato prices. Conclusions are that free-buy trade has mostly been pretty steady for most. The chipping and processing sectors are generally reporting high volume of supply not being met by demand. Frost damage from last week is coming to light, with many crops reported to be pushed back 1-2 weeks in development. Frost is likely to have had some effect on yields of early crops, but at this stage it is hard to judge by how much.
Lifting of new crop seems to be going well, although for some conditions are too dry.
