Eight Per Cent of Ontario Processing Crop Harvested

-

About eight per cent of Ontario’s processing crop has been dug, Ontario Potato Specialist Eugenia Banks, says in an email on Sept. 15.

Most of the potatoes Banks has seen have come out of the ground healthy. She notes though there are always some problems with some.

“One of them was a red-skinned variety with a high incidence of heat necrosis, so high that the crop was unmarketable,” she says in the email.
