Contracts Have Worked Well for Louisiana Sweet Potato Grower

It was a challenging 2018 harvest for sweet potato growers across the United States. Each region experienced some kind of adverse weather, with North Carolina - the nation's largest producer - enduring the effects of two hurricanes and record rainfall. Other states had an opportunity to step up and contribute volume, however some areas were affected more than others. "The weather was atrocious right across the south," observed Ken Thornhill of Thornhill Farms in Louisiana.
