Chris Voigt, executive director of the Moses Lake-based Washington State Potato Commission, also predicted similar fresh acreage for Washington fresh-market potatoes in 2012-13 — about 25,000 acres.

As of late June, mild growing weather in Washington meant outstanding growing conditions for spuds, Voigt said.

“They’re probably the best-looking plants we’ve ever seen,” he said. “The plants have thrived in the cooler weather.”
