Abstract

Sweet potato harvesting in California occurs mainly during October and early November. Much of the crop is marketed immediately resulting in relatively low prices during this period. During the winter and spring months, California becomes a deficit area and sweet potatoes are shipped in from other states. With good storage practices, sweet potatoes can be held for six months. Increased storage could permit larger California production and a more stable price structure.
