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


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--
random basis and placed in storage at the time of harvest. Reports will continue to be issued through
April for the 1975-76 storage season indicating accumulated average grade and weight loss for potato
samples removed from storage.

Samples recovered before February 1, 1976 on the average continue to show a pronounced improvement
in quality compared with a year ago. The percent of Red, White and Russet varieties that graded U.-S.
No. 1 (including B's) was 86, 83 and 68 percent, respectively, and compares with 77, 72, and 45 percent
for the February 1 period a year earlier. The decline in U. S. No. 1 grade while in storage is Tesp
for Red and Russet varieties and is indicated at 5 percent (Reds) and 19 percent (Russets) for sadioes
removed from storage to date compared with 14 and 28 percent for the same period a year earlier ;kThite
varieties, U. S. No. 1, reflect a 4 percent change in grade compared with 1 percent a year earlier.;

The percent graded as Culls was less than a year ago for all varieties. The percent culls 4pr
samples removed from storage by February 1, 1976 and February 1, 1975 are as follows: Reds 7, 8;
Whites 10, 20; and Russets 17, .7. Total weight loss while in storage, for recovered samples, wasne
slightly higher than a year ago for Red and White varieties, but less for Russets. Weight loss ranges
from 3 to 5 percent and compares with 3 to 9 percent a year earlier.:

Averages for all potatoes shipped during the season (final) are shown for the 1974 crop. Thus,
comparisons relating to change in grade from February to final can be made for the 1974 crop. In inter-
preting current survey indications, consideration should be given to further changes that may occur in
average grade and weight loss from February 1 to the end of season.
