The potato harvest on area fields is off to a slow start due to “extreme heat” for this time of year, but the yield is at normal levels, according to Wayne Warmbold, regional manager for R.D.

Six crews are working in fields across the area, toting the taters into the plant and storage areas. (Jean Ruzicka / Enterprise)
