Potatoes: Weak yields

In the Netherlands, demand for processing raw materials is currently falling. This is probably because the Dutch potato harvest is just before the high season. One is busy sorting and processing the goods, which is not storable. There is currently little demand for additional purchases on the open market. The recent rainfall has helped to improve the harvesting conditions, although not all regions have received enough rainfall. A quality-friendly harvest is comparatively difficult on sandy soils. Last trial procedures brought no new findings. The average yield is about 52 tons / hectare lower than the 5-year average. Potato yields in Belgium are also very weak. The variety Bintje has suffered greatly from the summer heat, the variety Fontane delivers significantly better results. The average yield at Bintje is 32.7 tonnes / hectare and the oversize share is only 56%. In 'normal' years the average yield is 40-52 tonnes / hectare and the oversize share is up to 76%, for the Fontane variety the average yield is 39 tonnes / hectare and the oversize share is 74%.In "normal" years yields between 45 and 47 tons / hectare are achieved.
