UK: Potato area drops to lowest since 1960

GB potato growers planted 119,900ha this season, a drop in area of 2.1%, according to a provisional estimate by the Potato Council. That is the lowest area since at least 1960 and, with an average yield of 44.9t/ha, would produce a crop of 5.39m tonnes – 330,000t down on last year but 900,000t more than in 2012.
