Potato Production in Syria

Potato production in Syria amounted to 401.3 thousand tonnes in 2015, declining by -25.6% 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 -4.3%. This general negative trend was largely conditioned by a noticeable curtailment of the harvested area and a noticeable contraction of the yield figures. The growth pace was the most rapid in 2008, when the output figure increased by +26% from the previous year level. In that year, the potato production in Syria attained its maximum volume of 720.5 thousand tonnes. From 2009 to 2015, the potato output in growth failed to regain its strength.
