GB potato production

Updated 11 December 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 2020 estimate of GB potato production is 5.37Mt. Knowing the latest production figures, as well as historical data, can help to better understand the potential direction of price on a regional and sector level.

Additional information

Potato production figures are calculated using information from the Grower Panel Crop Data Survey which is provided by approximately 400 growers each year.
