The updated value is 2,100ha less than the first August estimate. The revised estimate represents the GB area covered by more than 90 per cent of producers, and reflects both last year’s high production and challenging market conditions, coupled with the difficulties in planting in spring, according to AHDB Potatoes.

 

Maris Piper remained the top variety based on area planted by some margin, however, varieties such as Nectar, Royal and Innovator made significant gains in area, according to AHDB figures.
