Shipment of Potatoes from the North Dakota-Minnesota Red River Valley

The primary purpose of this study was simply to determine the destinations of potatoes shipped from the Red River Valley, North Dakota-Minnesota. This analysis includes the volume shipped to each area and the type of market within each destination area, that is, the potatoes were categorized as table stock, institutional stock, or seed stock. Each type of potato is ultimately consumed in each destination area in homes, institutions, or as seed. A second objective was to determine the mode of transportation used to ship potatoes to market. The share of each king of market (table, institutional, and seed) claimed by the two modes, rail and truck, was also determined.
