Planting an acre of Potatoes
Hello all I am trying to understand somethings. IN the next few years, I am planning on planting 2 acres of potatoes ( organic) for sale at a local farmers market. I have done some research, and found that the yeild for an acre of potatoes can be around 220 cwt. Now from what I understand is that cwt stands for hundred pounds, so does that mean the yeild can be 22000 lbs / acre?
I am thinking that this cant be right, because that is 11 tons of potatoes per acre, so i think i am doing something wrong, any help from you more experienced folks out there?
