The LEH shows great interest in a range of reconstruction, which currently imports benefit from, what's coming soon, but also of the local goods to good. The start of the season is however disappointing compared with the two previous years in terms of price. The starting prices are not even half as high. Relatively low prices are likely to partially roll back offering import, if used safely until early July also stable potatoes from Spain.

Apart from the usual programs no longer on the market should be. Ware potatoes as well as no longer interfere with the events from German or French production. Disposed of in this country for the manufacture of starch residue and further supplies from France, trade has virtually no interest. Currently, it rather looks like a better market next week in the season to create than expected only 3 weeks ago. Also rather medium to low yields contribute, which are due to the small number of tubers. How the sometimes tremendous blight pressure still affects, remains to be seen.
