United Potato’s bright start shines less brightly

January 6, 2012
A late December report from the U.S. Department of Agriculture has added another perspective on the current drama surrounding the Salt Lake City-based United Potato Growers of America.
 
On Dec. 30, the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service released its Agricultural Prices report, which reported that the December price of potatoes, while up from November, was more than a dollar lower per cwt. than a year ago at the same time.
 
The organization’s whole reason for being is to rein in acreage to buoy markets, but on Nov. 30, a USDA report revealed that U.S. fall production rose 5% from 2010.
