POTATO STOCKS QUALITY SURVEY
MINNESOTA AND NORTH DAKOTA (RED RIVER VALLEY)


UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA

3 1262 0882 0892


The potato stocks quality information contained in this report is based on a survey conducted
by the Economics, Statistics, and Cooperatives Service in the Red River Valley of North Dakota a
Minnesota. Sample bags of potatoes selected on a random basis were placed in storage at harvest
time. Reports issued each month during the 1979-80 storage season have shown the cumulative average
grade and weight loss for these potatoes at the time of removal from storage. At the request of the
Red River Valley Potato Growers Association, samples were selected only for processing potatoes.

Based on samples of russet varieties recovered by May 1, 1980, the quality at harvest is also
indicated well below a year earlier, but after storage quality is now 1 percentage point higher than
last May 1. The percentage of russet samples grading No. 1 (including B's) declined 6 points between
harvest and May 1, 1980, compared with a 15 point decline during the comparable period last season.
The percent of russet varieties graded as culls both at harvest and after storage is much higher this
season than for samples recovered by May 1, 1979. The total weight loss while in storage this year
was 6 percent to May 1, compared with a 4 percent weight loss during the comparable period last
season.


The cooperation of the many potato growers and storage operators who assisted on this project
is greatly appreciated.
