P.E.I.’s dry summer may take a toll on potato yield

P.E.I.’s dry summer may affect the potato yield in parts of the province as the autumn harvest begins.

Though the summer has been gorgeous for tourists, Greg Donald, general manager of the P.E.I. Potato Board, says the lack of rain will take a toll on potato yields in parts of the province — particularly West Prince.

“[We] definitely have concerns in some areas of the Island and have no doubt that it’s going to be below average in areas that just didn’t get enough rainfall,” Donald said.
