Ontario Processing Crop of Potatoes is 70 Per Cent Dug

-

About 70 per cent of the Ontario processing crop has been harvested, Ontario Potato Specialist Eugenia Banks, says in an email on Oct. 5.

Yields are better than expected, but there have been areas in fields which received heavy rainfall in August which were not dug, Mark VanOostrum with WD Potato says.

There have also been reports of round potato varieties for the fresh and processing markets which have had a small number of long tubers instead of being round, Banks says.
