High potato yields expected in top growing nations

Potato plantings in the five key North European potato producing countries reached a record 548,475ha this year, according to the latest Euro Potato estimate. And growing conditions have been conducive to above-average yields. Based on five-year average yields and in-season estimates, average yields in Belgium, France, Germany, GB and the Netherlands are currently pegged at 49t/ha, which could see production top 27m tonnes. EU potato prices have been in steep decline since early April, with new season markets reaching record lows.
