TOTAL POTATO STOCKS DOWN 4 PERCENT
DECEMBER 1, 1975


Stocks of potatoes for all uses held in storage by growers, local dealers and
processors in the fall production areas totaled 179.4 million cwt. on December 1,
1975, according to the Crop Reporting Board. This is 8.3 million cwt. (4 percent)
less than the 187.7 million cwt. on hand a year earlier but 21.6 million cwt.
(14 percent) above 1973.

SStocks in the eight eastern States.on December 1, 1975 totaled 31.1 million
cut., down 10.5 million cwt. (25 percent) from the 41.6 million on hand a year
earlier. Stocks were down in all States except Vermont. Maine's stocks of 20.8
million cwt. compare with 29.1 million a year earlier.

Stocks in the eight central States totaled 34.1 million cwt., 19 percent less
than 42.2 million on hand a year earlier. A report on "Stocks Quality" in the Red
River Valley is shown on page 4 of this release.

December 1 stocks in the eight western States totaled 114.2 million cwt. com-
pared with 103.9 million on hand a year earlier. Washington and Oregon account for
9.6 million of the total western States increase of 10.3 million cwt.

Disappearance of the 1975 fall crop to December 1, 1975 totaled 88.4 million
cwt. (excluding Nevada), 10 percent less than the 97.8 million cwt. moved during
the comparable period a year earlier.

The quantity of potatoes processed to December 1, 1975 in seven major States
totaled 31.8 million cwt., a decrease of 9.8 million or 24 percent fewer processed
than in the comparable period a year earlier.


ote: 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 is lost
primarily through shrinkage and waste.

POTATO STOCKS QUALITY SURVEY
Minnesota and North Dakota (Red River Valley)


UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA


31262 0886: 0710 J


The quality information contained in this report is based on a special survey
conducted by the Statistical Reporting Service in the Red River Valley. A total of
210 samples selected on a random basis were placed in storage at the time of har-
vest. Subsequent reports will be issued each month during the 1975-76 storage
season indicating accumulated average grade and weight loss for the potato samples
removed from storage at the time of shipment.

Potatoes placed in warehouses in the Red River Valley show an improvement in
quality for the 1975-76 season as compared to a year earlier. White and russet
varieties contained 7 percent and 12 percent more No. l's, respectively, at time
of harvest this year as compared with a year ago. There is also a corresponding
decline in the proportions of No. 2's and culls for these varieties. For Red
varieties, the percentage of No. 1, No. 2 and culls are virtually unchanged from
the comparable period a year earlier.

Averages (after storage) shown in the tables for the 1974-75 storage season
reflect the quality and weight loss of all potato samples recovered during the
entire season. For the 1975-76 storage season, no samples had been removed from
storage by December 1.


NOTE: Size and grade data obtained from potato objective yield surveys
conducted in 12 States are published in the December 10, 1975
Crop Production Report.
