According to the Agricultural Marketing Resource Center, Potatoes, Revised October 2018, Overview:

“Potatoes (Solanum tuberosum) are the fourth most important food crop in the world and the leading vegetable crop in the United States. Together, Idaho and Washington produce more than half of the annual supply, which totaled 442 million cwt in 2017, up slightly from the previous year, and was valued at $3.77 billion. The average price for all potatoes in 2017 was $9.10 per cwt, was up $0.02 from 2016. (NASS 2018).

“About 63 percent of potato sales are to processors for French fries, chips, dehydrated potatoes and other potato products. The remainder goes to the fresh market, is fed to farm animals or re-used as seed tubers for growing the next season’s crop. (NASS 2018).”
