Potato crop estimate just roughly right

The preliminary result of the German Potato Harvest 2018 broadly corresponds to market expectations. 25% less potatoes than last year were expected by the market even before the official harvest estimate of the BMEL. Nevertheless, many market participants doubt the results in detail. The highly cultivated regions such as the eastern part of Lower Saxony, the German Lower Rhine and the new potato area in the southwest of Germany should have very good yields. In other regions, such as Bavaria, and especially in eastern Germany, where there was little rain, the yields are much lower than described by the ministry.
In general, it is expected that there will be little change in the final result, since many more samples have already been evaluated than in other years on this date.
Conclusion: rather roughly correct than exactly wrong
