Potato Production in Sri Lanka

Potato production in Sri Lanka amounted to 87.9 thousand tonnes in 2015, rising by +6.8% against the previous year level. Overall, the potato output pursued a pronounced growth from 2007 to 2015. The trend pattern, however, indicated some noticable fluctuations throughout the analyzed period. The total output figures increased at an average annual rate of +1.6%. This general positive trend was largely conditioned by a measured expansion of the harvested area and a moderate improvement of the yield figures. The growth pace was the most rapid in 2012, when the output figure increased by +22% from the previous year level. Over the period under review, the potato production in Sri Lanka reached its maximum volume in 2015, and is likely to continue its growth in the immediate term.
