NDSU Extension and University of Minnesota Extension potato agronomist Andy Robinson says the potato crop is variable across Minnesota and North Dakota. “In general, the potato crop is good. It’s been a good growing year. Most of Minnesota and the southern part of North Dakota are wet. In the northern part of the Red River Valley, it’s dry,” says Robinson. “The crop looks nice, but rains would help with harvest reducing bruising that could happen.” Robinson says there’s minimal disease and insect challenges this year. “It’s been a quiet year, in general.”
