Yield estimates 2020 for storage potatoes are still speculative

Drought in the spring, coupled with a few frosty nights had limited the yields of early potatoes, but the yields from the main harvest will hardly have any impact. An increasing number of analysts are venturing into projections for the 2020 potato harvest. Yield estimates are still highly speculative, but the rains of the past few weeks suggest that at least average yields in the Netherlands of 450 dt / hectare can be expected. Assuming this, the 2020 harvest in the “Big 5” countries (B, F, GB, NL, D) would be 5% larger than in the previous year, the AMI in Bonn is now calculating. However, it is not yet possible to speak of a record harvest there, it says. On the futures exchange, the prices of the Apri-21 futures on processed potatoes dropped again today and ended the trading day at the provisionally lowest price level during this period at € 6.4 / dt. Before the corona crisis in early March, this futures contract was still trading at € 15 / dt.
