Most Northern Ireland growers are reporting a significant drop in yields at this year's harvest.

Most are seeing fewer and smaller tubers, particularly in the later-planted crops. It seems likely there will be fewer potatoes this year, an Ulster Farmers' Union official said.

Most of Europe will see similar results. European stocks will be considerably lower. This will result in a buoyant marketplace.
