Publication Date: 
29 August 2014

The AHDB Potatoes has now produced provisional estimates of planted areas by variety for Great Britain for 2014. These are shown with comparisons to the five previous seasons.

The total planted area for GB is now estimated at 121,900 ha. This revises upwards the end-June provisional estimate of 119,900 ha and is based on a sample of 2,013 growers. The area update has been made following the incorporation of additional data, including some relatively large planting returns, since the end-June estimate which was based on 63% of registered area. The updated 2014 area estimate is still slightly down on the 2013 season plantings of 122,400 ha.
