Adverse Weather Delays Potato Harvesting in Northern Spain, Impacting Market Prices

Published Oct 23, 2023
Excessive rain has disrupted potato harvesting in northern Spain, with areas like Salamanca, Valladolid, and Segovia managing to deliver their crops, while farmers in Andalusia are eagerly awaiting October rains to resume their harvest. However, introducing French potatoes into the Spanish market has caused an oversupply, resulting in a slowdown of the potato campaign in Castilla y León and continuous price declines. Consequently, the wholesale price of fresh potatoes in Spain has plummeted by 21.53% WoW, reaching USD 0.51 per kilogram in W4 of Oct-23, after almost two months of stability.
