2016 potato production drops 22 percent in North Dakota


The Associated Press - September 19, 2017

FARGO, N.D. - Potato production in North Dakota last year dropped 22 percent from 2015.

The Agriculture Department says farmers in the state produced 21.6 million hundredweight of potatoes in 2016. A hundredweight is equivalent to a 100-pound bag.

Decreases in planted acres, harvested acres and average yield all contributed to the drop in production last year.

The value of potatoes sold from the 2016 crop totaled $199 million, down 14 percent from 2015.

North Dakota is the nation's sixth-leading producer of potatoes.
