    Though the state has only potato growers, the crop is worth $ billion to the state’s economy each year, Chris Voigt, executive director of the Washington State Potato Commission, told The. The Columbia Basin vegetable region includes parts of Morrow, and Umatilla counties as indicated on the map at right. The Columbia Basin is a major area for the production of potatoes, sweetcorn, melons and onions and a number of other temperate vegetables, herbs and vegetable seeds. Crops are produced for both fresh market and processing. The.

    Potato Production. There is also a substantial wholesale market in the Mid-Atlantic based around the increasing demand for locally-produced foodstuffs and specialty-type potatoes. Due to the wide diversity in types and high consumer consumption, potatoes are a good enterprise option for many growers.

    in the Columbia Basin big business, leaving little room for farmers with small acreages. Land that is too steep or poor to use for wheat pro-duction is scattered throughout the cultivated area. Al-though modern machines and methods have permitted some of this land to be brought under cultivation, there. irrigation, and water diverted for agriculture is the largest offstream water use in the Columbia system—over 6,, acres, or 37 percent of total cropland in the area, is irrigated (Census of Agriculture, ). Over 93 percent of daily water use in the Columbia River basin (, acre-feet per day) is for agriculture (ibid.).

This study provides information on (1) the variable and fixed costs required to produce potatoes, for the fresh or processed markets, under center pivot irrigation, and (2) the ranges of price and yield levels at which potato production would be a profitable enterprise.

Contracts for Columbia Basin potatoes are down less than half a percentage point from last year, the negotiator working on their behalf says. Dale Lathim, executive director of the Potato Growers.

Washington's total potato production and the Columbia Basin produces one third of North America's fr ozen potato products (Tri - City Herald, ). Processors primarily produce. • Farmers clear land for planting by slashing vegetation and burning the debris • Farmers grow crops on the cleared fields only for a few years, until soil nutrients are depleted, then leave it fallow for many years so the soil can recover • 1/4 of the world's land area, but less than 5% of the people practice it.

Spring potato final production for totaled million cwt, As fall potato harvest wrapped up around the Columbia Basin, growers were expecting above-average yield and quality thanks to an exceptional growing season.

Bill Brewer, CEO of the Oregon Potato Commission, said early spring conditions helped to jump-start the crop’s growth, while summer cooled off enough to avoid stifling the plants. Goals / Objectives Develop high-value crop production systems which maximize economic yield and quality and minimize detrimental environmental impact of crop production, through use of best-management practices for fertilization and irrigation, pest control, plastic mulches, row covers, windbreaks, etc., and plant stand establishment.
