Canadian potato crops in varying stages of growth and/or harvest

As the first day of fall arrives, the potato crop in the country is in varying stages of growth and/or harvest. The production outlook is mixed after  parts of Eastern Canada experienced one of their driest seasons on record, while growers in Western Canada work feverishly to harvest their crop from the ground after Mother Nature’s early onset of winter prevented  them from doing so last year.

Based on current information it is expected that Canadian production
could be off by at least 6,000,000 hundred weight. If yields do not
continue to add weight in late maturing varieties and the last harvested  fields, production decreases could approach 8,500,000 hundred weight below last year’s crop. These estimates assume and hope that all of Canada’s 363,470 planted acres will get harvested.
