Fresh potato shipping season wrapped up Friday for Buxton, North Dakota based NoKota Packers. CEO Steve Tweten says overall, the shipping season was ok. “The pricing to the farms could have been better, should have been better.” Tweten says shipping season is shortened from last year. That’s partly because transportation improved. “We were able to move our crop through the normal channels as needed. The truck supply was very well improved.” Other shippers in the Red River Valley will continue moving potatoes through June.
