Max Armstrong discusses how weather is impacting food supply including potatoes where the supply in storage has fallen. Wet conditions are impacting harvest of spring and summer potatoes. Max looks at California supply and weather impact, though there’s good news for chipping potatoes. However the run up for input prices and rising competing commodity prices pushed acres away from fall potatoes too. And there’s also a challenge to the supply of sweet corn too.
Max Armstrong's Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
