PotatoPotato Market Reports

Potato Market Update 12th June

Plantings have only finished up over the past few days in the southeast. It is speculated that numbers under plants will be lower as crops are so late being planted. There is a lot of demand and enquiries for any new season crop coming onto the market as stocks become increasingly tight. 

In the U.K. plantings are only just finished up also. There is good movement on contract and some packers are still looking for cover to take them through to the new season.

New crop prices in Germany are reported to be getting stronger. It is also reported that yields are low because of heavy rainfall and compaction resulting in low tuber numbers. There is very good demand for the early crop in Spain and prices have risen. Good movement to Northern and Eastern Europe is helping to push up ex farm values.
