Publication Date: 
19 November 2014

The AHDB Potatoes provisional estimate of total production in Great Britain for the 2014 crop year is 5.71 million tonnes, marginally down (-0.3%) from the final 2013 figure of 5.73 million tonnes.

Average yields for GB are estimated at 47.2 tonnes/ha, up 0.8% on 2013.

Planted area is estimated at 121,100 ha, down 1.1% on last year. This figure revises the provisional end-August area estimate of 121,900 ha. The area update has been made following the inclusion of additional data, since the end-August estimate, which was based on 85% of registered area.

The AHDB Potatoes will update the estimate for GB potato production in early 2015.
