Publication Date: 
17 December 2014

The AHDB Potatoes updated estimate of total potato production in Great Britain for the 2014 crop year is 5.74 million tonnes. This is up approximately 30,000 tonnes on the previous estimate following a concerted effort to collect additional yield information from growers before Christmas. The 2014 estimate is nearly 3% higher than the 2013 estimate of 5.58 million tonnes. 2014 average yields for GB are estimated at 47.4 tonnes/ha while planted area is estimated at 121,100 ha.

This is the last planned update of the 2014 crop estimate. The first information regarding the 2015 crop will be made available in the summer when the initial planted area estimate is released.
