Potato prices as of Aug 28, 2020

IN Poland prices at the end of this week slightly increased to $ 0.06-0.13 / kg, although the farmers described the situation as catastrophic in general. Harvesting of late potato varieties in Poland has not yet begun, and prices have already dropped to their lowest levels over the past decade. Prices for potatoes in Poland were lower only at the end of summer 2012, but the situation was then leveled off by the active export of these products to the Balkans. Prospects for supply to these markets are now dimmer, although potato crops in the Balkan countries have been hit by a drought this summer. At the same time, prices for carrots in Poland have remained stable so far, varying in the range of $ 0.21-0.35 / kg.

Another country where potatoes have risen in price is Georgia… Here the average price for these products slightly increased to $ 0.23 / kg, although there were still quite large batches of low quality potatoes on the market, offered, as in the previous week, from $ 0.16 / kg. Meanwhile, the price range for carrots in the Georgian market at the end of the reporting period was $ 0.20-0.26 / kg.
