GB planted area

Updated 09 October 2020
Please note that AHDB will cease production of any GB potato supply information on 02 July 2021. The Board has made the decision to wind down all potato activities and minimise expenditure while waiting for Ministers to decide on the future of AHDB Potatoes. This follows the result of the potato ballot where growers voted to discontinue the statutory levy. This web page and dashboard will not be updated after this date. If you have any questions please contact

The revised GB potato area estimate for 2020/21 is 117.47Kha. Understanding the size of the cropping area can be the first indicator of production size and potential movements in domestic prices in the upcoming year.

Additional information

Planted area is based on levy return data and is published annually once 60% of levy returns have been submitted. The data is updated as more levy returns come in.
