Last, all Potato farmers about the unforeseen market course and crash of courses are bitterly disappointed, especially when you consider that the derivatives market high price times amounted to 24 €/ dt.

Everyone asks himself, what are the reasons for the unexpected history of the market, Which one mistakes were made, what to say (or hide) the common statistics?

Certainly the late increase in earnings is taken too little in the past year. It has shown again that nature can compensate much until the end of the vegetation. We should not know this as farmers and also not often in the last few years have experienced? Or did we not see it, because less amount promised better prices? The outlets of the factories are harder for us farmers to oversee, as well as the technical processing yield, which every year is better. From a quantity of potatoes be made more and more French fries and chips and the "waste" more consistent and better. The export options are in the front into difficult to overlook. The amounts planned for Eastern Europe was not obtained in this campaign and also elsewhere, no unexpected need arose. In particular too little was taken into account by the agriculture, that in recent years the season high rates often are reached at the end of the crop year.
