Potato Production in Portugal

Potato production in Portugal amounted to 585.3 thousand tonnes in 2015, rising by +8.4% 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 -1.1%. 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 +14% from the previous year level. Over the period under review, the potato production in Portugal attained its maximum volume of 638.9 thousand tonnes in 2007. From 2008 to 2015, the total potato output growth failed to regain its strength.
