About this project

This report drew on published international and UK research studies as well reports produced by government and non-government organisations (including AHDB Potatoes and commercial groups) organisations and expert opinion. These sources of information were brought together to present a consensus view of the impact on the environment of potatoes grown in the UK and steps being taken to minimise or mitigate these effects. The report also considers the social impacts of potato production.
