Columbia Marketing International, NoKota Packers

NoKota Packers has begun using the Odenberg grading system to help increase efficiencies in sorting its red potato offerings from the Red River Valley. Currently the market price is low due to overproduction of potatoes nationwide. President Steve Tweten, tells AndNowUKnow, “It has been an interesting harvesting year in the Red River Valley. In early and mid September, the weather conditions were incredibly dry and then too wet in late October. Field moisture prevented harvest and then rains came and froze what was left in the ground. But with our grading system we have been able to sort the crop and are offering plenty of great quality potatoes for our retail partners.”
