The 13 major potato States held 55.5 million cwt of potatoes in storage June 1, 2017, up 8 percent from June 1, 2016. Potatoes in storage accounted for 14 percent of the fall storage States' 2016 production, 1 percent more than last year. Potato disappearance, at 350 million cwt, was up 1 percent from June 1, 2016.

Processors in the 8 major States used 183 million cwt of potatoes for the season, up 2 percent from June 2016.

The 13 major potato states are, in descending order of production: Idaho, Washington, Wisconsin, North Dakota, Colorado, Oregon, Michigan, Minnesota, Maine, Nebraska, New York, Montana and California.
