Market Commentary: Russet table potato prices increased in Idaho, Wisconsin and the Columbia Basin last week. Prices remained flat in the San Luis Valley.

Notes: Prices are Friday mostly quotes. All prices are in dollars per cwt. FWA is a weighted average of shipping point prices for common packs in each area. Weights differ by area. GRI is the Grower Returns Index for each individual area, on a delivered to packing shed basis. Idaho GRIs are based on a 60% packout for Burbanks and a 75% packout for Norkotahs.
