An additional factor in the Russian potato market was the limited supply of quality products, as many farmers reported problems with potato caliber due to dry summer weather. On the Russian carrot market, meanwhile, the trends were exactly the opposite, and due to an active harvesting campaign, local farmers reduced prices by 5-8% to $ 0.13-0.20 / kg.
