SIPOTATO STOCKS DOWN 6 PERCENT

Stocks of potatoes for all uses held in storage by growers, local dealers
and processors in the fall production areas totaled 152.9 million cwt. on
January 1, 1976, according to the Crop Reporting Board. This is 10.0 million cwt.
(6 percent) less than the record 162.9 million cwt. on hand a year earlier but
19.3 million more than on hand January 1, 1974.

January 1 stocks in the eight eastern States totaled 25.2 million cwt., down
28 percent from the 35.2 million cwt. on hand a year earlier. Stocks in Maine
totaled 18.0 million cwt., down 30 percent from the January 1, 1975 stocks of 25.8
million cwt.

Stocks in the eight central States totaled 26.7 million cwt., a decline of 24
percent from the 35.3 million cwt. on hand a year earlier. Stocks in Minnesota
and North Dakota on January 1, 1976 totaled 16.8 million cwt., down 7.5 million
from the 24.3 million on hand a year earlier.

Stocks in the eight western States totaled 101.1 million cwt., up 9 percent
from the 92.4 million cwt. on hand a year earlier. Increases in stocks occurred
in California, Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Washington. (NOTE: Idaho stocks,
December 1, 1975, have been revised from 58.5 to 60.0 million cwt.).

Disappearance from the 1975 fall crop to January 1, 1976 totaled 114.9 mil-
lion cwt. (excluding Nevada), down 6 percent from the 122.6 million cwt. moved
during the comparable period a year earlier.

The accumulated quantity of potatoes processed in seven major States to
January 1, 1976 totaled 40.1 million cwt., a decline of 19 percent from the 49.4
million cwt. for the comparable period a year earlier.

Note: 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 liorth Dakota (Red River Valley)


UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA


3 1262 01862 0146


Quality information contained in this report is based on a potato stocks quality survey conducted
by the Statistical Reporting Service in the Red River Valley. There were 211 samples selected on a ran-
don basis that were placed in storage at the time of harvest. Reports will be issued during the 1975-76
storage season indicating accumulated average grade and weight loss for potato samples removed from
storage.

Samples recovered before January 1, 1976 in the aggregate showed a pronounced improvement in quality
as compared with a year ago. The U.S. No. 1 (including B's) grade for Red ant V'ite varieties averaged <
86 and 82 percent respectively and compare with an average of 70 percent for (all varieties) on the eom-
parable day a year earlier. The Red and V.h.ite varieties removed from storage contain 5 and 4 percent
fewer to. I's than when they were harvested.

Culls for both Red and White varieties average 2 percent rore after storage than when they were har-'
vested. Culls averaged 6 percent for Reds and 10 percent for 'hices after storage as compared with 21
percent all varieties combined a year earlier. Total weight loss wl.ile in storage is now indicated at .il
3 percent For both Red and hlhite varieties.

This report does not contain Russet information for January 1, 1976 or conpazable data by varieties
for the January 1, 1975. Final data for the 1974-75 storage season is provided and slows the average
grade at harvest and after storage for matched samples whiich. ere recovered front storage.
