Expansion of North Western European potato area

Published on Jun 26th, 2019

The area dedicated to potato production in Europe’s five largest potato countries expanded by 2.4% to 609,000 ha of consumption potatoes – the largest ever. The data is based on provisional estimates released by the NEPG (North-Western European Potato Growers). This represents an increase of 8.4% compared to the five-year average.

The expansion is fairly uniform across the continent, with France and Belgium leading the way. It is still too early for figures from the UK.
