Canadian Potato Storage Holdings as of July 8th, 2022
Potato Holdings by Category July 2022
In previous years, the final holdings report of the season has been calculated in June, however since 2020 there have been reports in July, hence the zeros in the 2018-19 column, and this month’s report only includes a 2-year average. The tables attached provide a good snapshot of the supply of old crop potatoes to finish the marketing season.
The Eastern provinces continue to hold more stock than the west, as has been the trend during 2022, above 2 year averages in all 4 reporting provinces. However, the late planting season and delayed growth should give the time needed to deplete these additional stocks.
