According to Spudman magazine, reports from across the US are that yields for the 2018 harvest are good, including for seed producers. Striech and Associates, outside of Kalispell, Montana, showed both good quality and yields as their harvest got underway last month. Stoddard Farms, near Grace, Idaho, reported one day before the end of harvest they were bulging at the seams when it came to storage capacity.
Spudman says it will have a full report of the seed acreages and varieties from across potato producing states in the Nov./Dec. seed issue of the magazine. Until then, they provide a look at the reports from two of the 11 states that will be included in the full coverage – Oregon and Maine.
