h i.t:'.0mJ. ,fal States were 26.0 million this year compared with 28.1 million a year

IR : er. Smaller holdings in Ohio, Michigan, Minnesota, North Dakota, and Iowa

I tbha fayear earlier more than offset larger holdings in Indiana, Wisconsin, South

fall potatoes from time of harvest to January 1, 1967 was a record 96.2 million
hundredweight. During the 1965 season, disappearance to January 1 was 88.8 million
and for the 1964 season, it was 77.0 million.

Movement of fall crop potatoes to chippers and fresh market outlets during
December was above last year as indicated by rail and truck unloads in 41 cities.
Unloads for the season from harvest time through December 31 were also slightly
above the comparable period a year earlier. The quantity of potatoes processed for
other food uses (excluding starch and flour) during December was substantially
above a year earlier and more than offset the slow movement prior to December 1.
The season total through December 31 was above last year. Shipment of fall potatoes
to starch factories during December and from harvest time through December 31 we re
also above the same periods in 1965. Shrinkage, decay and waste during December aiii
for the season, mainly because of the heavy losses in Idaho, have been much above
a year earlier. Abnormally heavy losses of stocks on hand January 1, 1967 in Idahk
may be expected.
