Potato Production in Switzerland

Potato production in Switzerland amounted to 493.7 thousand tonnes in 2015, declining by -2.0% against the previous year level. Overall, the potato output pursued a moderate growth from 2007 to 2015. The trend pattern, however, indicated some noticable fluctuations throughout the analyzed period. This general positive trend was largely conditioned by a slight curtailment of the harvested area and a moderate improvement of the yield figures. The growth pace was the most rapid in 2014, when the output figure increased by +40% from the previous year level. Over the period under review, the potato production in Switzerland attained its maximum volume of 521.5 thousand tonnes in 2009. From 2010 to 2015, the total potato output growth failed to regain its strength.
