GB potato production
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
Potato production figures are calculated using information from the Grower Panel Crop Data Survey which is provided by approximately 400 growers each year.
If you are a potato grower in GB you can join the AHDB Grower Panel Survey. The information you provide will allow us to produce key national figures on production, yields and stocks for the potato industry. You will receive £100 as a thank you for participating and providing data. To sign up please visit the Potato Data Centre.
