Europa: Manitoba potato growers cautiously optimistic about 2021

Dan Sawatzky, general manager of Keystone Potato Producers Association: “You have to be resilient to be a potato grower. You have to be optimistic or you wouldn’t be in the business.

But with three [challenging] years back to back, the mood is — what’s the right word — certainly not as optimistic. Maybe cautiously optimistic going into this year. Maybe somewhat subdued as well.”

According to Sawatzky, Manitoba processors were forced to import potatoes since 2018 to make up for shortfalls. As of this spring, seed potato supplies were ‘very tight’.

Also this spring, the soil in parts of agro-Manitoba was very dry after a winter with limited snowfall and sparse spring run-off. Water levels in surface reservoirs were very low in March, making supplies look “rather bleak” without spring rains, Sawatzky said. As if this isn’t enough, the current pandemic threw a wrench into potato markets in 2020 after fast-food restaurants were forced to close their eat-in spaces and only drive-through orders were allowed.
