The results presented in this WSU publication serve as a general guide for evaluating the feasibility of producing potatoes in the Columbia Basin as of 2019, with a capital and machinery endowment suited to a 1,000-acre potato enterprise. This publication is not intended to be a definitive guide to production practices, but is helpful in estimating the physical and financial requirements of comparable plantings. Costs can also be calculated differently depending on the intended use of the budget. To avoid unwarranted conclusions for any particular farm, readers must closely examine the assumptions made in this study, and then adjust the costs and returns as appropriate for their operation.
