Potato Storage and Storage Houses
The primary object of storage is to hold a more or less perishable product in a salable and edible condition throughout as long a period as may be economically desirable.

The early or truck crop is usually sold as harvested, but there may be seasons when, owing to low prices, it might be found profitable to store the crop for a short period, or until such time as market conditions justify its disposal.
