Potato Production in Latvia

Potato production in Latvia amounted to 480.3 thousand tonnes in 2015, declining by -5.0% against the previous year level. Overall, the potato output pursued a pronounced decline from 2007 to 2015. The trend pattern, however, indicated some noticable fluctuations throughout the analyzed period. The total output figures decreased at an average annual rate of -3.6%. This general negative trend was largely conditioned by a noticeable curtailment of the harvested area and solid gains of the yield figures. The growth pace was the most rapid in 2012, when the output figure increased by +8% from the previous year level. Over the period under review, the potato production in Latvia attained its maximum volume of 673.4 thousand tonnes in 2008. From 2009 to 2015, the total potato output growth failed to regain its strength.
