* STORAGE QUALITY *
* *
* Due to the extremely wet conditions during potato harvest in the northeast region*
*of the U.S., there is major concern about the condition of potatoes in storage in this*
*area. *
* *


In Maine


, growers are reporting higher than usual shrink and grading


*some breakdown in storage.


osses with *


Storage problems are due primarily to wtter rot and


*


*blight. Potatoes going into storage on Long Island, New York during the rainy period *
*have some quality problems. Continued rainfall during most of Upstate New York's har-*


*vest period resulted in


substantial loss of the potato crop.


Nearly 7,000 acres were *


*abandoned and a portion of the crop went into storage wet. Shrinkage is expected to *
*be high. The storage condition of stocks in Pennsylvania 4re good to variable for *
*table stock. Storage problems are being reported for the shipping stocks, especially *
*in the western area of the State. In Michigan, many tubers wexi left in saturated *
*fields for an extended period of time and suffered deterioration. A frost during *


*this period also increased damage.
