RECORD POTATO STOCKS
December 1, 1974
Stocks of Irish potatoes for all uses held in storage by growers, local
dealers and processors in the fall production areas totaled a record 187.4 million
cwt. on December 1, 1974, according to the Crop Reporting Board. This was 29.6
million cwt. (19 percent) more than the 157.8 million cwt. on hand a year earlier
and above the previous record of 176.3 million in 1971.

The eight eastern States' December 1 potato stocks of 42.4 million cwt.
were 40 percent above the 30.3 million 6n hand a year earlier. Stocks were up in
all States. Maine's stocks of 29.5 million cwt. compare with 21.3 million a year
earlier.

Stocks in the eight central States totaled 42.6 million cwt., 24 percent
greater than the 34.5 million on hand a year earlier. Significant frost damage
occurred to potatoes during harvest in North Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Ohio.
Shrink and loss for potatoes remaining in storage is expected to be above normal.

December 1 stocks in the eight western States totaled 102.4 million cwt., a
10 percent increase from the 93.1 million cwt. on hand a year earlier.

Disappearance by December 1 from the 1974 fall production was 100.3 million
cwt., 4 percent more than the 96.1 million cwt. disappearance by the same date a
year ago.

The quantities of potatoes processed to December 1, 1974 in seven major
States totaled 41.7 million cwt., representing an increase of 10 percent from the
37.8 million processed for the comparable period a year earlier.

Stocks are defined as the quantity remaining in storage for all purposes
and uses, including shrinkage and waste and other losses that occur after the date
of each report. Sales of fall potatoes for all purposes generally account for
about 90 percent of the total fall production. The remaining 10 percent are pri-
aily lost due to shrink. Although frost injury is apparent in some storage in
the Central and Eastern Regions no attempt is made at this date to estimate poten-
tial losses to current storage stocks. A comparison of.eha nualito f_1974 crop

POTATO STOCKS QUALITY SURVEY
MINNESOTA AND NORTH DAKOTA (RED RIVER VALLEY)


Potatoes placed in warehouses in the Red River Valley show a decline in quality for the
1974-75 season as compared to a year earlier. Red and white varieties contained 7 percent and
6 percent fewer No. I's respectively at harvest than at harvest a year ago. Russet varieties
show the largest decline in grade and average 10 percent fewer No. l's than the comparable period
last year. Red, white and russet varieties at harvest time averaged 2, 4 and 5 percent more
culls respectively than a year earlier.

The quality information contained in this report is based on a special survey conducted by
the Statistical Reporting Service in the Red River Valley. Samples selected on a random basis
have been placed in storage at the time of harvest and subsequent reports will be issued each
month during the 1974-75 storage season indicating accumulated average grade and weight loss for
potatoes removed from storage.

Averages (after storage) shown in the tables for the 1973-74 storage season reflect the
quality and weight loss of the potatoes shipped during the entire season. For potatoes being
removed from storage, the proportion meeting the various U S grade standards may vary from month
to month. If lower quality (grade) potatoes are shipped early in the season, the proportion
grading U S No. I's will be lower than in later months when relatively higher quality potatoes
are shipped.
