Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 16, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Potatoes Tuesday, May IS, THE LETHB3IDGE HERALD 5 th wor more Canadian potato growers will probably get higher prices for their produce in the 1972-73 marketing season. That is, if they stick with their planting intentions as in- dicated in the spring survey conducted by the agricultural division of Statistics Canada and the Crops Reporting Board of the United States Depart- ment of Agriculture. The surveys were earned out in March in both Canada and the U.S., according to J. R. Burns of the Canada depart- ment of agriculture economics branch. In the past two years, potato growers have been faced with low prices and rising costs. Re- flecting this situation, the planting intention surveys in- dicate that fewer potatoes will be grown this year. A planting of acres, about five per cent less than last year, is forecast for Can- ada. U.S. planting intentions for the early summer and lato summer- fall crops indicate acreage reductions of nine and three per cent respectively. Thus, with average yields, the supply of potatoes should be lower next year. With smaller potato supplies next winter, Canadian farm prices should be better than the two cents per pound aver- age for the 1970 crop. The average Canadian farm price for potatoes in 1904-68 was per hundredweight While this rose to for the 1909 crop, it fell to for the 1970 marketing year. At the same time, farm op- erating expenditures rose 11 per cent from the 1964-68 aver- age to the end of 1970. While farm prices for tho 1971 crop have been generally below those of the year pre- vious, some strengthening in prices to growers was evident in early April. In Alberta, the FOB ship- ping point price was per hundredweight, up from a year earlier, for washed Net- ted Gems. In B.C. these prices were per hundredweight for Netted Gems, down from a year earlier. About half of the 1971 crop is in storage and still to bo marketed. This is a higher per- centage than usual. The full effect on prices of the Agricultural Stabilization Board programs is still to be In the coming months.
