GB planted area by variety
This information shows the total GB area planted to potatoes broken down by variety. Using the interactive tool below you can see year-on-year changes in planted area by specific variety.
The total 2019 planted GB area (revised estimate) is 118.95Kha. This updated estimate puts the area 1% higher than last year and represents the GB area covered by over 90% of producers. Although the revised estimate shows a slight increase year-on-year this remains one of the lowest on record. Much of the increase seen in area has been from small growers increasing their area, a decision likely driven in part by the high priced year of 2018.
Planted area by variety 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.
