Potato Production in Rwanda

Potato production in Rwanda amounted to 2,140 thousand tonnes in 2015, declining by -3.3% against the previous year level. Overall, the potato output pursued a pronounced growth from 2007 to 2015. The trend pattern, however, was roller-coasting throughout the analyzed period. The total output figures increased at an average annual rate of +10.4%. This general positive trend was largely conditioned by a robust expansion of the harvested area and solid gains of the yield figures. The growth pace was the most rapid in 2010, when the output figure increased by +39% from the previous year level. Over the period under review, the potato production in Rwanda attained its maximum volume of 2,338 thousand tonnes in 2012. From 2013 to 2015, the total potato output growth failed to regain its strength.
