The NEPG fixes the harvest estimate to 24.5 million tons after bottom

The official NEPG (North-Western European potato growers) crop estimate for the 5 major producing countries has been adapted to lower this week. For this season we the total harvest at 24.551.000 tonnes estimated (gross amount of harvest). This is 3% less than last year and is around 3.6% below the average of the last 5 years. The main reasons are the wet and fresh time in May and June, as well as the (very) dry and hot summer. Especially the new industrial potato varieties were not as good this year.
