average grade and weight loss for potato samples removed


.l.aples recovered before February 1, 1977 indicate that although quality of Red
and White -,arieties at harvest was higher tlis year, after storage quality was lower
than or the comparable date a year earlier. The percent of Red, White and Russet
varieties that graded U.S. No. 1 (inc eluding B's) was A3, 69 and 68 percent, respec-
tively, and compares with 86, 83 and 6 percent up to February 1 a year earlier. Th
decline in U.S. No. 1 grade while in storage is greater for Red and White varieties
and is irndJicated at 11 percent (10 points) for Peds and 22 percent (20 points) for

for samples reno'.ed from storage to date.


This compares with 5 percent decline


h ,,arieties during the same period a year earlier. Russe
ect a 17 percent change in grade compared with 22 percent


t varieties, U.S. No.
a year earlier.


The percent graded as Culls was above a year ago for all varieties. The percent
Is for sarples removed from storage by February 1, 1977 and February 1, 1976 respec-
ely are as follows: Reds 9 and 7: Whites 19 and 10; and Russets 21 and 17. Total
ght loss while in storage this season for recovered samples, was slightly higher for
se.s, uichan.ged for Whites and lower for Red varieties. Weight loss ranges from
