PotatoPotato Market Reports

Potato Market Update 26th June

Consumption remains buoyant with more demand coming from the peeling market as the holiday season begins. Plantings are now complete following a challenging period of unsettled weather conditions. New season material continues to creep onto the market; however, volumes are low. There are some reports that crops are developing unevenly to date due to seed quality and weather conditions. 

Across Europe, plantings are now mostly complete although many areas in Belgium and Southern Holland have recorded 25mm+ over the 10 days. Early plantings generally look well but agronomists continue to report problems associated with the extended planting season and the use of “exhausted” as well as cut seed. Variable emergence and seed rot is evident.
