The article focuses on issues related to potato yield. The author says that he and his peers start harvesting potatoes for storage earlier than normal but they have a field which had serious flooding. He states that the Agria variety is the lowest yield because it did not set enough tubers per plant. He also mentions that there was a big shortage of potatoes in 2006 due to the dry summer.
