Potato Production in Malawi

Potato production in Malawi amounted to 165.0 thousand tonnes in 2015, declining by -84.5% against the previous year level. Overall, the potato output pursued a pronounced decline from 2007 to 2015. The trend pattern, however, was roller-coasting throughout the analyzed period. The total output figures decreased at an average annual rate of -30.0%. 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 +15% from the previous year level. Over the period under review, the potato production in Malawi attained its maximum volume of 4,536 thousand tonnes in 2013. From 2014 to 2015, the total potato output growth failed to regain its strength.
