UK: 5.71 million tonnes potato production in 2014

The Potato Council’s provisional estimate of total production in Great Britain for the 2014 crop year is 5.71 million tonnes, marginally down (-0.3%) from the final 2013 figure of 5.73 million tonnes. Average yields for GB are estimated at 47.2 tonnes/ha, up 0.8% on 2013. Seasonal conditions across the major potato growing regions of GB were largely fine and conducive to strong crop growth and high yield potential. Above-average spring temperatures were followed by generally fine and settled summer weather.
