GB potato production

Updated 10 July 2020
The first 2020 estimate of GB potato production is 5.3Mt. This is only a provisional estimate as return volumes fall below the data threshold and is currently based on 75% of the sample. You will find historical data here and the 2020 final estimate once available. 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.
